Ten years ago, the International Labour Organization (ILO) established June 12 as World Day Against Child Labour. This image shows a young Indian bonded child labourer giving details to a police officer at a district magistrates office after being rescued during a raid by workers from Bachpan Bachao Andolan or Save the Childhood Movement, at a garment factory in New Delhi, India, on 12 June 2012.
