World Day Against Child Labour is observed on June 12 each year to raise awareness and mobilize efforts to end child labour globally. Initiated by the International Labour Organization (ILO) in 2002, this day serves as a platform for governments, organizations, and individuals to address the issue and advocate for social justice.
