One of the consequences of child labour is that it often prevents children from going to school. Young girls, especially those engaged in household labour whose work goes undocumented, are the first ones to be excluded from educational opportunities. According to UNESCO, over a 124 million children and young adolescents globally are still out of school and there has been minimal progress on this issue since 2007.
