The Project aims to re-energize its action towards the target of elimination of all worst forms of child labour by 2016 and all child labour by 2020. This is in response to the government that in 2008, with support from the ILO, initiated a review of the then existing National Master Plan (NMP) on the Elimination of Child Labour (2004-2014) and in 2010 it updated the National Master Plan on Child Labour (2011-2020).
The Embassy of Denmark in Kathmandu, Nepal, Government of Denmark, provides a contribution of US$280,000 with the ILO’s technical assistance of US$95,000 for project implementation from July 2011 to December 2012.
