Turkey -School instead of seasonal work -October 01, 2013

The teachers’ trade union Eğitim-Sen distributed notebooks and school supplies to dozens of children working in cotton fields in the south-eastern province of Şanlıurfa in an attempt to raise awareness about the thousands of pupils who work on farms, particularly during harvest periods. For years, many nongovernmental organisations have carried out campaigns in rural parts of the country to encourage families to send their children, particularly their daughters, to schools instead of setting them to work.
