Education International - working globally to end child labour

Education unions affiliated to EI are participating in projects aimed at developing child labour free zones in 10 countries: Burkina Faso, India, Malawi, Mali, Morocco, Nicaragua, Uganda, Tanzania, Togo and Zimbabwe.

To develop child labour free zones, local NGOs and education authorities work closely with the trade unions towards implementing actions in the field. Over 1,500 teachers have received training aimed at combating child labour since 2014. These projects are supported by the AOb, Mondiaal FNV, the GEW Fair Childhood Foundation and the Dutch coalition Stop Child Labour.

Here you can find some documents and resources by EI on child labour:
