During the conference, children from the Child Labour Free Zones in Uganda performed the poem "What is it?" and the song "Save us now, the time is now".
A Child Labour Free Zone is a place where no child labour exists and where all children go to school. This could be a village or a plantation. In a child labour free zone everyone is convinced that children belong in school and not in the workplace. Everyone cooperates to completely eliminate child labour and get all children into school. Watch our video on Child Labour Free Zones:
