Child labor (alternate spelling: child labour) refers to the employment of children by commercial and business enterprises in ways that are detrimental or exploitative to the overall growth of the child. Child labor has been an international concern. When children are engaged as laborers, they are deprived of normal childhood. A year-old boy, Mohammad Manan Ansari, talks about how he escaped exploitation at a mica mine during an international conference held on the day dedicated to the fight against child labour.

        While child labor occurs all over the world, countries such as Egypt, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, India, Thailand, Bangladesh and China are some of the countries where child labor is common. Children are considered optimal employees because they are compliant, and the tasks that they perform in the fashion industry often require a low amount of skill. The International Labour Organisation states in its latest World Report on Child Labour () that there are around million working children in the world—almost 17 per cent of the worldwide child population. According to the publicly available data discussed in more detail below, Sub-Saharan Africa is the region where child labour is most prevalent.
