Description
The Effective Approaches to Ending the Worst Forms of Child Labour in Fragile Contexts (EAPEC) programme will be implemented by a a Consortium comprised of two NGOs (War Child and World Vision), media organisation (Thomson Reuters Foundation), research partner (Columbia University) and niche organisations addressing child labour in supply chains in conjunction with the private sector (UN Global Compact Network UK and FiftyEight).

The EAPEC programme, which is funded through the UK Department for International Development (DfID) will bring change for girls and boys to enjoy their rights to be protected from the worst forms of child labour (WFCL) in Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo and Ethiopia.

The programme will test and measure innovative approaches to understand what works in reducing WFCL. It will address WFCL through tackling the supply and demand issues (which result in child labour) with a holistic intervention focusing on four main components:
1) Increasing children’s agency
2) Facilitating access to appropriate alternatives to WFCL
3) Strengthening legal and policy environment
4) Improving supply chain due diligence and duty of care from the bottom up
