A world for children

growing up without child labour

Child labour is not a natural phenomenon

There seems to be a persistent misconception about child labour: first the poverty problem must be solved and then child labour will no longer be necessary. This is putting the cart before the horse. Poverty is in fact not the cause of child labour but it is a result of child labour. The fight against poverty must begin with the fight against child labour. Children can contribute to the development of their country, in the future, but only if they are given a chance to go to school now.

In this book about child labour, author and photographer Peter de Ruiter, touches a raw nerve. During his travels in nine countries across three continents he began to understand the reality of child labour, how it originates and why. He made notes of the fallacies created to justify why children should work. He photographed the injustice the children are subjected to. And he offers solutions! The reader is given different ideas on how to personally take action against child labour.

Children must go to school. They must play and learn and be allowed to develop their full potential. It is up to adults to create a world in which children can do exactly that: a world for children. Child labour is not a natural phenomenon. It was created by man and can be ended by man.

This book is targeted towards a broad audience: consumers, employees of aid organisations, politicians, children from the age of about ten, anyone who feels touched by the subject. The more than 400 exceptional photos and the critical text spread just one message: stop child labour now!

Peter de Ruiter
Dutch travel photographer and author Peter de Ruiter (1960) spent many years travelling around the world. On his travels he was regularly confronted by children begging or working, children who for these or many other reasons do not attend school. To write this book he went in search for what was behind this distressing phenomenon - in the hope that his words and images would contribute to a solution. His degrees in sociology and mass communication helped him understand and publicize the subject.
