Out-of-School Children: UNESCO Asia-Pacific In Graphic Detail #9
About 18.7 million primary-aged children in the Asia-Pacific are being deprived of their fundamental right to attend school, due to exploitation through child labour, disabilities, poverty, armed conflicts and child marriage. On the occasion of World Day Against Child Labour on 12 June, UNESCO Bangkok seeks to raise awareness about challenges facing out-of-school children, with the latest in a series of infographics.
