Our impact

The ECLT Foundation works directly with communities in 6 countries.

International Advocacy

Working with global leaders

Joining forces is key to maximising our impact and eliminating child labour. At international level ECLT actively engages with the United Nations, International Non-Governmental Organisations, and Multi-National Companies. ECLT is a member of the UN Global Compact, ILO Child Labour Platform Alliance 8.7 and a holder of United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) special consultative Status.

National Advocacy

Supporting National efforts to eliminate child labour
  • At the National Level, ECLT brings together government, employer and worker representatives, farmers associations, civil society and local leaders to secure concrete commitments, to build capacity and close policy gaps.

  • ECLT raises awareness on child labour and supports the development and implementation of national, district and local action plans.
