It is shocking to read about the enormous number of children in labour. This text feels is written in Apple's favor and I believe that this is a text about Apple washing its hands. I do believe that Apple was aware of the child labour, but exposed it themselves before others could.

This article describes the situation of companies utilizing children in their production. It also tells about how no company wishes to be associated with underage labour as a subject. This article gave a larger view of the situation how the companies and producers think towards the situation, which made a bigger impact on me.

Sets our life in a perspective.

Marte Sødal's curator insight, March 6, 2014 3:06 AM

This video shows us an overwiev of how the system of child labour in India works. It tells us about the ignorance of the community, as well as the denial of childhood. To me it opened my eyes to all the differences there are in the world and to the fact that I should appreciate my life as it is.

Renathe Kristoffersen's curator insight, March 6, 2014 3:15 AM

This video hits my heart. It is so horrible to see whar child labour does to children in India.
