The Global March Against Child Labour network, and in particular the Confederación de Trabajadores de la Educación de la República Argentina (CTERA) suffered a huge loss.
A key and long standing member of the Global March movement in South America and a child rights supporter in Argentina, the former head of campaign at CTERA, Carola Abrales passed away on October 26.
She was a great defender of the rights of the people, in particular of children engaged in child labour. Carola has left us with some great lessons for a life that is committed towards equality and justice.
On behalf of the Global March network, we would like to express our heartfelt condolences to her family, friends and colleagues at CTERA.
We will always remember Carola for all her extraordinary efforts in ending child labour.
