Would you like to contribute ideas about the role of the financial sector in combating child labor?

VBDO, in cooperation with the Alliance Work: No Child’s Business (consisting of Save the Children, Unicef en de coalitie Stop Kinderarbeid), organizes a couple of sessions in the field of finance and child labour. These sessions will be at the start of a study VBDO will perform on how financial institutions are dealing with this topic and what best practices there are.

In these expert sessions we will collectively look at the challenges the financial sector faces in dealing with child labour and share experiences.

The UN has declared 2021 the international year for the elimination of child labour. We hope this year will offer momentum to collectively fight child labour and are interested in your views on what the role of the financial sector ought to be.
