아프리카 어린이의 날: 어린이 인신매매와 노동착취는 종식되어야

* UNICEF: Day of the African Child – ending child labour and trafficking in Niger * 08 May 2007 Walking to work at sunrise in Niger’s capital Niamey. In one of the poorest countries in the world, the sight of children toiling in the streets is part of the daily landscape. In Niger, two-thirds of children under 14 work. They come from all over the country and from abroad. Some of them are trafficked, many end up here, at the central bus station. Child trafficking is the focus of this year’s Day of the African Child. Across the continent, children are trafficked into prostitution, recruited in armed groups. They provide cheap or unpaid labour and often work as servants or beggars. 14 year old Zakika Hamidou used to work as a maid. She managed to leave and is now attending a UNICEF-supported training centre where she learns skills such as henna painting and sowing along with 50 other girls. SOT: (Hausa), Zakika Hamidou, 14 “My aunt came to get me at our village near Loga and she took me away to work here in Niamey.” Zakika used to work in this house…..she was quickly replaced by another young girl. UNICEF and its partners have been working with the government to reinforce laws protecting children from human trafficking, abuse and exploitation. It is also helping children get off the streets and return to their homes providing them with special training to ease their reintegration into their communities. SOT: (French), Hassia Issa, Child Protection Officer, UNICEF Niger “Right now UNICEF has a big project against human trafficking especially women and children and we are also supporting the government to elaborate laws and sign bilateral as well as multilateral agreements within the framework of West Africa.” Child labour and trafficking exposes children to violence and other forms of abuse. It deprives them of their right to protection and to go to school. The practice must be stopped to restore children’s dignity, growth and development.
