On the implementation:

We will develop and implement “zero child labour” procedures with artisanal mining cooperatives and, at the same time, we will facilitate access to education, reduce poverty and improve financial literacy and incomes.

On the impact:

This Action Pledge will support at least three artisanal mining cooperatives in implementing zero child labour policies and will help to address its root causes in the project communities.
