11-year-old Amirul, earns 100 taka ($1.22 USD) a day, selling books from a pushcart, on April 19 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. A recent UNICEF report, “The State of the World’s Children 2012: Children in an Urban World,” focuses attention on children in urban areas. One billion children live in urban areas, a number that is growing rapidly. Yet disparities within cities reveal that many lack access to schools, health care and sanitation, despite living alongside these services. Many children are forced to work to support their families. A 2003 report found than more than 6.3 million children under the age of 14 are working in Bangladesh.
