On the pledge:

We will work closely with our affiliates in child labour endemic countries to implement interventions to create awareness on curbing the digital divide exacerbated by COVID-19 and addressing child labour.

On the implementation:

We will propose interventions at various levels: global advocacy and networking, ground-level interventions to mitigate digital exclusion for workers’ families, specifically children, and expanding stakeholders cooperation (Government, Employers and CSOs/TUs).

On the impact:

This Action Pledge aims to create wide awareness on the issue of child labour, initiate ground-level actions in partnership with its affiliates in child labour endemic areas, and look into policy gaps to address digital exclusion and school drop-outs exacerbating child labour.
