What is Social Protection?

What is Social Protection? How is it built? Who is responsible for it? Who benefits from it? And why is it key when it comes to Child Labour?

For the World Day Against Child Labour, Innocent Mugwagwa, Senior Programme Manager at the ECLT Foundation addressed this necessary conversation. Social protection is about creating systems where the defence of the rights of each person is the priority for all actors involved.

Social Protection is about ensuring that every person in a community can enjoy their rights. And when it comes to this, a collaborative and cooperative approach between various actors is key.

These are links built on commitment, which requires constant work, collaboration, and continuous cooperation.

Building social protection systems is crucial to eliminating child labour.
