Improving Child Labor, Human Trafficking

By Johannes Shikuloh | Organization Leader

Evidence shows that child labour, forced labour and human trafficking in global supply chains can be traced to the interplay of three critical dimensions: (a) gaps in statutory legislation, enforcement and access to justice that create space for non-compliance; (b) socio-economic pressures facing individuals and workers; and (c) business conduct and overall business environment. These fundamental labour rights violations need to be understood as structural phenomena that require comprehensive policy responses.

 

To address the challenges of child labour, forced labour and human trafficking, tis project implements relevant standards and Conventions and enforcement of national laws and regulations that are of paramount importance. More efforts are needed by Organizations to support each other through technical cooperation and the exchange of experience.

The project is implementing programs that helps in mitigate the evil of child labour and human traffickings as follows:

1. The social service workforce - plays a core role in preventing and responding to labour rights violations and abuses, and removing children from child labour and people from forced labour and trafficking. (Strengthening the reach, calibre and funding of the social service workforce is crucial).

2.  Investments in child survival interventions and access to basic services such as nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene, and health services - these needed to ensure children’s healthy development, and help break intergenerational cycles of poverty.

3. Stronger social protection systems to guarantee adequate standard of living, including social protection floors - these are necessary to offset the vulnerabilities that can push people into forced labour and human trafficking or that can oblige families to send their children to work as survival strategies.

4. Microfinance -this can help vulnerable families avoid falling victim to debt bondage, as access to the financial market through such schemes helps reduce their dependence on employers, recruiters and other moneylenders for loans. Access to credit also enables families to hedge against some of the risks they face.

In conclusion, the project is hardly reaching itts objectives due to unvailability of te needed funds.
