The Philippine time-bound programme: Child labour sugpuin! Ngayon Din!
The Time-Bound Programme (TBP) is an improved modality designed to assist countries to eliminate the worst forms of child labour within the shortest possible time frame. It aims to assist countries in developing
policies, programmes and projects that have a demonstrable impact on the worst forms of child labour.
The work of ILO-IPEC in the Philippines has for its context the Memorandum of Understanding which the Philippine Government and the ILO signed in June 1994. The memorandum required the Philippine Government to establish a National Steering Committee for the IPEC programme and a secretariat to assist the Committee.
