In the topic of Human Rights and Sustainable Development many countries still lack the strength in their human rights meaning they still have child laborers, human trafficking, abuse towards many different kinds of people, and many more injustices. I am deeply concerned that almost all of the countries still have human trafficking; more than 1 million women and children are forced into prostitution each year. I am sad to report that a some 25 million children between ages of 5 and 14 are currently working. Of this total, 120 million children are working full time. To put this all into perspective about 1.3 billion people living in developing countries make ends meet with less than a dollar a day. While the 8 sustainable developmental goals have had a huge impact on the world we need to come together as a nation to strengthen these goals and change the world for the better.
