‘Stop Child Labour – School is the best place to work’ (SCL) is a coalition coordinated by Hivos. The coalition consists of the General Union for Education (AOb), FNV Mondiaal, Hivos, the India Committee of the Netherlands (ICN), ICCO Cooperation, Kerk in Actie and Stichting Kinderpostzegels Nederland, and collaborates with local organisations in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Stop Child Labour cooperates with local organisations in Asia, Africa and Latin America that are committed to getting all children out of work and into school. We promote the area-based approach towards creating child labour free zones: areas where the inhabitants are convinced that child labour should be eliminated and are prepared to take the necessary steps to get all children out of work and into school.
