Child labour: India, Brazil, South Africa become role models in fight against child labour

In less than two weeks, the labor ministers of almost 200 countries will participate in a global conference on child labor in The Hague, Netherlands. They will be working on a new "road map" to wipe out the worst forms of child labor by the year 2016. A major focus of the conference will be on three countries -- India, Brazil and South Africa. They have assumed the status of role models because of their own recent efforts to combat child labor. As VOA's Vidushi Sinha reports, all three are being cited for exceptional political commitment.
