Child abuse on South African farms
Jeremy Molokisa's story.
Sixteen year-old Gavin Molokiswe's story is symptomatic of more than 200 000 South African children currently in the work place. Forced by economic circumstances, Jeremy sought work on the farm, which employed his mother, in order to help with the support of his family.
Often forced to work more than the legal 8 hours each day, Jeremy's minimal wages, physical torture and abuse by his employer, led to the youth participation in the Global March Against Child Labor, along with 50 of his fellow child workers.
