The Stop Child Labour annual report shows progress in the elimination of child labour in countries and sectors under the ‘Getting down to Business’ programme.
Stop Child Labour implements the programme ‘Getting down to Business – Accelerating joint action towards a child labour free world’ with funding from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs for a period of two years, from 1 July 2017 – 30 June 2019. The programme focusses on three countries: India, Mali and Uganda and a number of sectors: gold, natural stone, leather/shoes, textile/garments, vegetable seeds and coffee. The programme promotes the concept of child labour free zones linked to a sector based approach of companies and CSR initiatives. By doing so, we expect to get more thousands of children out of work and back into school. The annual report shares experiences and results over the past year. Lessons learnt will be taken into account to strenghten action in the second year. By doing so, we hope to motivate and inspire more companies and other stakeholders to take responsability and join the fight against child labour.
