According to the International Labor Office, 5.7 million children in Latin America and the Caribbean under the age of 17 are working under extremely harsh and hazardous conditions. Many have been forced to leave their families, and are struggling to survive on their own.

In Central America and Mexico, at least 80,000 to 100,000 kids are living on the streets. Often forced to perform dangerous and degrading labor, these children are at great risk of being physically or sexually exploited.

Watch this short video to learn about child labor, and what Covenant House is doing to provide a better life for these children in Central America.

As a hunger advocate, I know that early childhood hunger is a growing concern across America.
Now, a new study sponsored by the ConAgra Foods Foundation in cooperation with Feeding America shows that 3.5 million children under the age of five are food insecure.

“The startling fact that so many very young children in this country do not have adequate nutrition necessary to grow and develop into healthy adults is heartbreaking. It is all the more tragic when one considers that it is also entirely preventable,” says Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America.
