In Brazil, for example, forced labour is found from the charcoal-burning projects of Minas Gerais and Bahia to the sugarcane estates of Espíritu Santo and the north-east. While most such labour is performed by adults, children are inevitably involved also. 41 In Mauritania, thousands of children are still born each year into effective slavery. 42 Another example is in Myanmar, where hundreds of thousands of people, including children, work on construction projects aimed at fostering tourism and economic expansion, often in appalling conditions.
Many others do not. And commercial agriculture — removed from sight, on remote farmlands and plantations and with its quotas, high use of chemicals and profit pressures — has more in common with industrial sweatshops than with an ideal family farm. Legal, social, economic and educational initiatives are all needed to protect children from the dangers they face, especially since agricultural workers are among the world’s poorest. The Child Welfare Association of Thailand, in collaboration with the country’s Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, studied child workers in sugar-cane and rubber plantations and proposed that the same labour laws for the industrial sector be applied, with appropriate exceptions, to the agricultural sector.
Some idea of the scale of the problem can, however, be gleaned from local surveys. A survey of middle-income households in Colombo (Sri Lanka) showed that one in three had a child under 14 years of age as a domestic worker. 36 Among the most common adjectives used to describe child domestic workers are ‘timid’ and ‘listless’. Childhood has been stolen from these children. Research in this field is still in its infancy. But to promote it, early in 1996 Anti-Slavery International organized a seminar at Charney Manor, Oxfordshire (UK) for NGOs and institutes that have investigated the situation of children in domestic service.
