Child labour harms human dignity says pope

Children who can't play and dream can't grow says Francis

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 19 - Child labour harms human dignity, Pope Francis said Friday.
    Francis told participants at an international conference in the Vatican that child labour "is exploitation of children in the productive processes of the globalized economy to the advantage of other people's profits and gains.
    "It is a negation of children's rights to health, education, and harmonious growth, which includes also the possibility of playing and dreaming.
    "This is tragic: a child who cannot play, who cannot dream, cannot grow.
    "It is stealing the future of children and therefore of humanity itself". (ANSA).
