World Day Against Child Labour, 12 June 2012 "Human Rights and Social Justice: Let's End Child Labour
12 June 2012
The global theme of the World Day against Child Labour 2012 very much complements the national drives towards child labour elimination. On 12 June 2012, ILO, UNICEF, World Education and the National Human Rights Commission (the four co-developers of WDACL 2012) in cooperation with the Ministry of Labour and Transport Management are organizing a “Breakfast Seminar” for the media journalists and other key stakeholders on 12 June 2012. The purpose of this Breakfast Seminar is to inform about and discuss the current child labour situation in Nepal, the international standards and national child labour elimination commitments made and the challenges at stake in light of the WDACL 2012 theme on Human Rights and Social Justice. The seminar is believed to give impetus to the endorsement of the National Master Plan (2011-20) on Child Labour by the Government of Nepal and initiate interventions resulting in a sustained action for its elimination. Besides, production and dissemination of the Promotion materials (i.e. brochures, posters and briefs) adapted in the national context, awareness program through national and local medias and facilitation of a broad-based signature campaign covering more than five thousand stakeholders will be undertaken with financial assistance from the ILO IPEC and in close cooperation with the co-developers of WDACL 2012, prior to and on 12 June.
