Prevention and Elimination of Child Labour in the Traditional Craft Villages -Documentation of Potential Intervention Model in Hien giang commune, Thuong tin district, Hanoi city

This report presents one of three action programmes (APs) implemented in Viet Nam by the ILO-IPEC project “Support the Development and Implementation of the Programme on the Elimination of the Worst Forms of Child Labour” during 2009-2013. The APs were implemented in Hien Giang commune, Thuong Tin district, Ha Noi, from July 2011 to September 2013.

The Action Programmes were encompassed a wide range of activities, including awareness raising and capacity building, education and vocational training, improving working conditions and occupational safety and health as well as support of household livelihoods to prevent and eliminate child labour, especially in its worst forms.

These potential intervention models were presented at a project workshop in Nha Trang city in August 2013 to share experiences with almost 200 representatives of government agencies at central, provincial, district and commune levels who are project partners. These models have also been appraised at AP closing workshops at each of their respective provinces.

These potential intervention models have also been presented at a consultation workshop to develop the National Programme of Action on the Elimination of Child Labour in its Worst Forms, with the participation of central and provincial government agency representatives from 12 provinces.
