End Abusive Labor of Thousands of Children

Target: Honourable Lautafi Fio Selafi Joseph Purcell, Minister for the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Labour

Goal: Bring an end to abusive child labor in the agricultural industry of Samoa.

Countless children are suffering from unfair and unsafe labor abuse in Samoa. According to new reports, Samoa experiences the world’s worst forms of child labor. This must be changed immediately.

In Samoa, thousands of children every single year are pulled out of the classrooms and into the workplace. These children are between the ages of five and fourteen and most of them illegally work in the country’s agricultural industry.

Child labor must be brought to a swift and permanent end. Children should not be exploited and abused for only a few meager cents. Sign the petition to demand that Samoa’s government end child labor.


Dear Minister Purcell,

Thousands of children every single year are being exploited in your nation. They’re being pulled out of their classrooms and into the workplace. Children as young as five are toiling in fields.

International labor bodies have found your nation to suffer from the world’s worst forms of child labor. Something must be done immediately to protect the lives of your nation’s children. Children deserve an education, not a life of unjust suffering.

  2. Child labor isn’t the future for these dear ones!

  3. Mr. Purcell…..these children should be in school learning,so that they can help get your country out of dispair and poverty when they become adults….it seems to be a vicious cycle….instead of child labor,put the criminals in the fields to labor….

  4. Do these parents have children as personal slaves?
    What kind of mentality is that?
    Leaders wake up! Lead your people out of mental darkness!
