What did he learn
Craig kielburger learned that children have been separated from there family's for years because they have been tricked into sending there children to bondage. Children have been beaten when they commite small errors. He also learned most children suffer from lung disease because of continuous inhailing of woolen dust. There were horrible air conditions that caused children to work from morning to late evening. The children only got one square meal a day.
