The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and the ILO’s International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour join forces to combat child labour

The partnership connects the 40 million-strong Scout Movement with the ILO’s International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC), in particular with its Supporting Children’s Rights through Education, the Arts and the Media programme (SCREAM). SCREAM is an education and social mobilization initiative that empowers children and youth by equipping them with knowledge and skills to participate actively in the campaign against child labour and for social change.

The partnership has resulted in joint action at many levels. In particular, WOSM and the ILO have taken the SCREAM Education Pack to a large number of Scouts at grassroots level, including training on SCREAM and Scout-led activities to raise awareness of children’s rights, and child labour in particular.
