Arise Video Brazil - Achieving Reduction of Child Labor in Support of Education

The International Labour Organization (ILO), along with its partners Winrock International and JTI International, presents the documentary carried out under the ARISE Program Achieving Reduction of Child Labor in Support of Education.

The ARISE Program was launched in January 2012 in the municipality of Arroio do Tigre, in Rio Grande do Sul and has the support of government partners, organizations representing workers and employers, civil society and tobacco growing communities.

The documentary summarizes the performance of these partners during the years 2012 to 2014 with the main objective to prevent and progressively reduce the labor of children and adolescents in tobacco farming. 

ARISE aims to end child labor in communities where JTI sources tobacco leaf. We work with those directly affected and with others who have the power to change things. Our initiatives are developed and delivered in collaboration with tobacco-growing communities, social partners and governments.
