To commemorate the 2021 World Day against Child Labor, the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs of the Federal Republic of Somalia, the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) agreed to scale up efforts to end child labor in Somalia. In 2019, Somalia made a minimal advancement in efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor however; there is a long way to go to eliminate child labor from the country. Even though there are different reasons behind child labour in Somalia, the government in close partnership with the international community is working hard to identify and eliminate child labour from Somalia. “Children should be in a classroom and protected from child labour,” said Jesper Moller, Acting UNICEF Representative in Somalia. Legislation must also address the worst form of child labour – forced recruitment into armed forces or groups.
