Challenge

Child labour constitutes a key obstacle to achieving Universal Primary Education and other Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Zambia. Not only on the welfare of individual children, but also slows broader national poverty reduction efforts. Children forced out of school and into labour to make help their families make ends meet are denied the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills needed for gainful future employment, thereby perpetuating the circle of poverty.

Solution

Identification and Removal (Direct Action): Immediate direct reaction will be used to rescue children from unconditional worst forms of child labour and provide them with the support and follow-up needed for their recovery and reintegration.

Long-Term Impact

Second chance education will offer children who have never enrolled/drop out in school, a ‘bridge’ to successful integration or reintegration in the formal school classroom, and later succeed in future after attaining meaningful employment.
