These zones have become ghettos of poor working conditions. Workers’ rights are often violated and organising workers into trade unions is very difficult.

In the district of Erode, nearly a hundred children have been removed from auto and motorcycle repair shop work and are now back in school.

  4. Ghana's Code of Conduct against Child Labour

    10 April 2012

    One of the keys to successfully fighting child labour is making families aware how they may be putting their own children at risk. But that is especially challenging when the labour of young children has traditionally been considered an extra source of income for the family. The Ghana Employers Association is using social dialogue to prove that traditional attitudes can change, by introducing a code of conduct to help to eradicate the worst forms of child labour.
