On the pledge:
We will tackle the issue of child labour in a holistic, systematic and innovative manner leveraging the technical expertise of the ILO on this issue. We will also address the six strategic issues outlined in the National Action Plan (NAP) for Combating the Worst Forms of Child Labour in Egypt and Supporting Family (2018-2025).
On the implementation:
We will focus on compliance with international labour standards (ILS) through leveraging ILO’s Better Work Programme (BW), building the capacity of the private sector members through a dedicated corporate social responsibility (CSR) and responsible business conduct training program, and developing an interface and platform for national inspection visits and its results in cooperation with the Ministry of Manpower.
On the impact:
This Action Pledge will strengthen our capacities as the largest employer organization in Egypt with over 60,000 member companies and allow us to use our extensive membership base, outreach, and influence to sensitize the private sector in Egypt to better address child labour issues.
