Support government implementation activities

Strengthen capacity

ARISE actively engages with governments to further improve regulatory frameworks on school attendance and elimination of the worst forms of child labor. We focus on promoting education in target areas as well as at the national level.

ARISE aims to strengthen capacity for implementation of governmental policies and action plans. We provide assistance to support the implementation of governmental activities and promote any regulatory actions that can contribute to the elimination of child labor. This means that we:

  • provide training and technical assistance to special child labor units, workers’ and employers' organizations, district labor inspectorates, national child labor network members and other partners for example, through child protection systems
  • advocate for mainstreaming of child labor concerns into relevant policies and programs
  • develop child labor focal points in all ministries of governments in countries where we work.
