Heartbreaking photos of child laborers capture the issue the media rarely addresses

 When the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, it was a chance for the world to focus on a pressing issue that rarely makes headlines: the plight of child laborers around the world. 

Yousafzai, 17, and Satyarthi, 60, were awarded the prize for “their struggle against the oppression of children and young people, and for the right of all children to education,” the Norwegian Nobel Committee said. The award offered an opportunity to discuss the complex economic and social implications surrounding child labor, an issue too often ignored in countries where corruption and poverty permeate daily life or overlooked by media organizations that chase “sexier” global crises, like climate change, terrorism and AIDS.

There are an estimated 168 million child laborers around the world | Follow micdotcom
