It observed that children, who fell into this category, lacked of access to qualitative education, proper healthcare, social security and clean water.
WFTU, representing 90 million workers in 126 countries in the World in a statement on Universal Children’s Day , emphasized that 55 years ago , the United Nations adopted the Declaration of the Rights of Children, describing the basic rights of children.
The body lamented that the Principles, were  yet to be accomplished for all children of the world, particularly for the children of the working class and the poor working people.
“We will continue to struggle against discrimination, against child labour and exploitation of the minors”, it said.
“We will continue to struggle for a world that will guarantee a safe, secure and happy environment for the young generations to grow and meet their full potential”, the statement added.
“We will continue to fight every day for a world without exploitation of human by human, without capitalist barbarity” it said.
