Stop Child Labour has recently published a guiding document on “Cooperating with the private sector in child labour free zones in Africa” with practical examples and inspirational stories for all actors to combat child labour in African countries. The document provides concrete action-oriented driven information useful to local government bodies, Community Based Organisations (CBOs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and trade unions working in different African countries on how to engage with Multinational Companies (MNCs) and their supply chain partners against child labour. In addition, this document provides information on what – according to international guidelines – to expect from MNCs with regard to their engagement in the eradication of child labour.
This document is a starting point to document experiences and steps on how to engage companies, certification programmes and CSR initiatives on child labour and other labour related issues. It is therefore a living document that can be enriched and updated in the coming years.
