The report is titled “Children, not workers. Community based responses to child labour in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Spotlight on Ghana, Sri Lanka, Trinidad and Tobago”, and it compiles and presents good practices adopted by stakeholders in Ghana, Sri Lanka and Trinidad and Tobago to eradicate child labour during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To elaborate the report, CHRI contacted all of the members of the 8.7 Network via email and through an announcement in the Summer 8.7 Network Newsletter. A total of 9 NGOs from the Network responded, identifying positive actions and providing useful information on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on child labour that was included in the report. CHRI also held approximately 15 interviews with key stakeholders, including state officials, NGOs and UNICEF, to gather key information from the different initiatives in the case studies.
The report was promoted in the website News Ghana, under the title 'CHRI lauds Ghana’s efforts to tackle child labour during COVID-19'. CHRI also published a blog about the report at the 8.7 Network website titled 'Innovative initiatives to address child labour: New CHRI report'.
