Full Stop Child Labour

‘Full Stop Child Labour’ aims to reduce and prevent the worst forms of child labour in Lebanon.

In partnership with the Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA) and Ministry of Labour (MoL), ‘Full Stop Child Labour’ aims to reduce and prevent the worst forms of child labour in Lebanon. The project works toward establishing a referral mechanism for working children, and training labour inspectors and social workers to recognise and understand the worst forms of child labour. They also receive training in Lebanon’s labour law as it relates to children, and in accessing the existing expertise and services provided by the child labour unit at the MoL. War Child, the MoSA and MoL are also working together to develop and implement procedures for reporting on cases of working children.

The project also provides educational programmes, psychosocial support services, vocational training, and extensive follow-up with families and employers for 600 working children. In addition, three national media campaigns, including spots on talk shows and local radio, and an animated TV advertisement, raise awareness on the worst forms of child labour amongst the general public. War Child is also conducting research to better understand the conditions and challenges faced by working children in Beirut.
