Together we can stop child labour
No child should be working. All children have the right to a good education, the right to play and the right to enjoy their childhood. Child labour means that poverty continues to exist. Eradicating child labour means development and better opportunities for everyone.
Based on this conviction, Stop Child Labour advocates a good education for children and a reliable income for adults. In Asia, Africa and Latin-America we are collaborating with local organisations who are committed to get all children out of work and into school. For example by taking an area-based approach towards the creation of child labour free zones.
But making changes there, requires taking action everywhere. That’s why we are asking governments, businesses and citizens around the globe to shoulder their responsibility and become part of the solution.
We will be able to stop child labour together, if we no longer accept it. Not in mines, not in agriculture, not in factories, not in the household and not in the products we buy.
