Child Labor and Neglect

money. Most of the places they work at, have bad working conditions.
They are treated poorly, and are paid very little. Working conditions
are so bad that most of the time it affects their health.

more opportunities.

110 million children miss out on going to
elementary school.
- Many children are kidnapped by militias and
forced to do hard labor.
- Other children have no choice, but to work in
a factory or to betray their birthplace.
- Many children in other countries don’t have a
safe home to go to or any home period.
- It costs 350 dollars to build a well, that seems
like a lot, but it costs 350 dollars to save the
lives of many children.

no ambulances, just two men and a stretcher.
- Other places don’t have medicines to cure
their deadly diseases.

What We Have Learned
• We have learned of how lucky we are for what
we have.
• We learned that many other people are dying
for water, while we swim in it.
• A child dies every three seconds of hunger,
health, lack of sanitation, and many others.
What We Can Do
- We can donate to make a well, and as IB
students we can provide essential items for
children under poverty.
- We can take them into our homes as if they
were one of our family members, just as Mrs.
Wilson did.
- We can all spread the word about changing
the world one step at a time.
Profiles and Attitudes
• We all Cooperated when we had to type all of
our written reports and our Power Point
• We all were Committed when we went
through the toughest part of the exhibition,
which was writing the reports and assembling
our boards.
• Now we show empathy towards others in the
world that have less than we do.
