12th of June World Day against Child Labour

To commemorate this year’s World Day Against Child Labour, 12th of June, Stop Child Labour reconfirms her pledge made during the Global Child Labour Conference in Argentina last year November.

During the Conference Stop Child Labour made a pledge to “support and enable initiatives of local communities and civil society organizations in Africa, Asia and Latin America to tackle child labour through community based approaches as an effective method to get all children in a certain area out of work and (back) into school. This enables the creation of child labour free zones. And inspires and enriches top down policies and their implementation. Together we continue working towards a child labour free world’.

The World Day Against Child Labour is an important momentum for all actors involved to focus attention on the global extent of child labour and the action and efforts needed to eliminate it. Each year, the World Day brings together governments, employers and workers organizations, civil society, as well as millions of people from around the world to highlight the plight of child labourers and what can be done to help them. Stop Child Labour continues to mobilize more actors to join hands in the fight against child labour.
