Child labour: YOU have a role to play!
As a visitor is potentially a buyer, you are a key player in the process for stopping child labour in the Petra Archaeological Park. Being conscious about all the numerous negative impacts child labour has on the children and their communities, you can easily understand now that the gesture of buying souvenirs or services from children keeps them in an unhealthy situation. The impulse for fighting child labour will come from the visitors who refuse to buy from children. Your attitude is decisive: it prepares the ground for a progressive implementation of regulations and a change in the mentalities for the respect of them.
By acting in this way, you will contribute to the protection of the children and help us to lead them towards a better future.
