On the pledge:

We will train and empower not less than 50 working-age children at risk of child labour, who will go on to be attached to various organizations either as apprentices, mentees, interns or young workers, or who become entrepreneurs in their own right.

On the implementation:

We will work to identify vulnerable children of legal working age at risk of child labour, provide them with appropriate training opportunities, and link them with employers that will provide work readiness initiatives for decent work opportunities.

On the impact:

This Action Pledge will galvanize and inspire employers to undertake special efforts to contribute to ending child labour as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
