For Satyarthi, the world's foremost leader in abolishing child and bonded labour, the crusade to fight for every child began in 1980, when he formed the Bachpan Bachao Andolan.
His tireless blend of activism, dialogue and deep compassion led the ILO to declare June 12 as the ‘World Day Against Child Labour'.
Convention182 prohibits child slavery, bonded child labour and all forms of exploitation of children as workers.
