In 2009, the GOJ launched the Tackle Child Labour through Education (Tackle) Project, which is funded by the International Labour Organization (ILO). The Ministry of Labour and Social Security and the Ministry of Education are the main ministries involved in the implementation of the project. Its main objective is to combat child labour through initiatives geared at assisting in the following areas:
• The achievement of the Millennium Development Goals which pertain to education;
• Strengthening the legal frameworks on child labour and education;
• Strengthening institutional capacity to formulate and implement child labour strategies;
• Carrying out targeted actions to combat child labour; and
• Improving advocacy and dissemination of good practices to enhance the knowledge base and networks on child labour and education.
