Family development session on child labour

Family development session: Module on child labour (also available in Filipino version)

The Child Labour Module was developed by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) as part of the convergence approach. This module will be included in the Family Development Sessions (FDS) with beneficiaries and communities under the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps). The module has been developed and enhanced through extensive consultations the National Child Labor Committee (NCLC) chaired by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

The module will serve as a tool to acquire appropriate knowledge, skills and attitude in addressing child labour. Specifically, it will help users to: (a) demonstrate understanding of child labour and its effects on children, families and communities; (b) recognize their vital role in safeguarding basic rights of children, including rights to education, play and development; (c) define ways to prevent children from being involved in child labour; (d) discuss existing programmes and services against child labour; and (e) plan initiatives and actions to combat child labour.
