On Monday, February 9th, I researched about child labor in India. I chose this topic because I already have some background info about India. This topic would be a good for me to research. On Monday I also researched child soldiers in Uganda. This topic is also a good topic for me to research because I have watched the movie Invisible Children and this gave me a good sense of what was going on.

Although I can create one it might be more difficult because I already know a lot about my first choice, child labor in India.
My third choice is helping UNICEF stop the problem of kids without education. This issue violates the right to education, human right # 26. I feel strongly about this issue, but not...
