We have seen change happen, not only in numbers of children going to school instead of work, but also in many other aspects of social-economic development.
“It has been very inspiring and rewarding to see how we have been able to develop from a European campaign with one partner organisation in India into a worldwide programme with partner organisations implementing the area-based approach towards creating child labour free zones in varied and diverse contexts. We see that it is indeed possible to get all children out of work and into school as long as we work together around the norm that ‘no child should work – every child must be in school’. It is because of the strong commitment and tireless efforts of our partners and within communities that we have come so far. Together we can end child labour and bring about change in the communities and beyond, for the good of all, now and for the next generations.”
