    ICESCO Affirms Commitment to Eradicating Child Labor and Promoting Child Welfare

    11 June 2024

    Every year on June 12th, the world marks World Day Against Child Labor to cast light on one of the most damaging social issues affecting children globally, which has been exacerbated by conflicts and crises. This day serves as a crucial reminder of the need for international cooperation to end child labor, aligning with this year’s theme: ” Act Now: End Child Labor.”

    On this occasion, the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) reaffirms its commitment to contributing to the eradication of child labor and enhancing the welfare of children worldwide. The Organization strives to provide a healthy, safe, and inclusive environment for all children, adolescents, and youth through various practical programs and projects.

    In this context, ICESCO has launched the Child and Adolescent Protection, Rehabilitation, and Leadership Initiative, which includes several programs. The main programs are the ICESCO Award for Child Protection, capacity building in mental and psychological health, Children for Peace Festival, educational and communicative programs to help reduce child labor, and rehabilitating street children through football.

    ICESCO underscores the importance of education and family support in combating child labor. The Organization is dedicated to protecting children from exploitation and ensuring safe environments where they can learn, play, and grow. ICESCO calls on Governments, National Commissions for education, science, and culture, and stakeholders to join hands to end child labor and work towards an atmosphere where every child can achieve their dreams in nurturing environments.
