Objectif
The overarching goal of the project is to “Accelerate the elimination of child labour in Africa”. Egypt Chapter of the project focuses on eliminating child labour in the cotton, textile and ready-made garment (RMG) value chain.

Présentation
The Project strategy builds on lessons learned from ILO’s decades of programme implementation on child labour. It also builds on the experience of the ILO with tripartite constituents at global, national and local level, and with actors along global supply chains and the private sector.

Through an integrated approach, the project seeks to promote enhanced national legislation and policies, to address the basic needs and rights of children engaged or at risk of child labour, while adopting an integrated area based approach, embedded in a value chain approach including cooperation with local industry and international buyers to achieve better compliance with international labour standards and reach more international market share for Egypt.

Bénéficiaires : Children and their families working at any level of the cotton, textile, and RMG production chains ; key ministries and other governmental agencies and national councils ; employers’ and workers’ organizations, and ; enterprises.
