Accelerating action for the elimination of child labour in supply chains in Africa (ACCEL AFRICA)

Our impact, their voices

  1. Malawi

    I plan to advocate for increased public funding for better and more accessible education in Malawi

    My name is Jessie Chingoma and I work as the Deputy Director of the Malawi Congress of Trade Unions (MTCU), a national trade union centre that promotes the growth of the trade union movement in Malawi. MCTU currently has more than two dozen affiliated workers’ organization members that represent workers in different sectors and is affiliated with the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC).

  2. Uganda

    « 100 Years – 100 Lives » | UGANDA - “I still live with back pain because of my work as a child in a tea plantation”

    As she entered the UN building in Geneva to take part to the Centenary session of the International Labour Conference in June 2019, Molly Namirembe – a youth advocate from Uganda - could almost feel like she was in a dream. But this was real. She was about to deliver a strong call to put an end to child labour that destroyed part of her own childhood and that could have led her to a life in poverty.

  3. Egypt 

    « 100 Years – 100 Lives » | EGYPT - “The ILO project will contribute to the elimination of child labour in Egypt’s cotton supply chain”

    Egypt is one of the six countries covered by a new ILO project to accelerate the elimination of child labour in African supply chains. It is likely to have a major impact on thousands of children’s lives throughout the country.
