Faces of Change: Highlights of U.S. Department of Labor Efforts to Combat International Child Labor (2nd ed.)
Hilda L. Solis (fr)
This report was compiled a decade after the 174 member countries of the International Labor Organization (ILO) unanimously adopted Convention 182 on the Worst Forms of Child Labor, which calls for urgent action to end the exploitation of children in abusive or hazardous work. The U.S. was one of the first countries to ratify this convention, which quickly became the keystone of the modern-day global campaign against child labor. Since 1995, the U.S. has provided over $720 million for projects around the world that have increased the global knowledge base on child labor, bolstered national efforts to confront the issue, and implemented action initiatives that have rescued some 1.3 million children from exploitive labor. However, there is more that must be done to protect children from premature entry into the workforce at the expense of their education and healthy, productive development. The children, families, and communities featured in this publication put a personal face to the global phenomenon of child labor. Their stories show how children and their parents, when given the opportunity, will choose education over child labor. With this education, children not only learn the basic skills they need to succeed in life, but discover that they, too, can dream of something better for themselves, their families, and their countries. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
