In Lebanon, for World Day Against Child Labour on 12 June, the NGO Beyond and the ILO organised a performance of music and theatre with the participation of current and former child labourers. Sixty children have worked with Syrian and Lebanese musicians and directors to develop a play that raises awareness about the issue. 2,500 working children and their families attended the event. The play aims to highlight the most dangerous forms of child labour, with the intention of reducing children’s participation in these jobs. Watch some photos from the work conditions of participating children, the rehearsal, and the performance.
