Stop Child Labour implemented 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 focussed 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 promoted the concept of child labour free zones linked to a sector based approach of companies and CSR initiatives. By doing so, thousands of children made the transition from work to school. The final report shares experiences and results over the past two year. Lessons learnt will be taken into account to strengthen action in new projects. By doing so, we hope to motivate and inspire more companies and other stakeholders to take responsibility and join the fight against child labour.
