Message from Save the Children’s Country Director on the Commemoration of the 2014 World Day Against Child Labour on Thursday, 12 June 2014

On the commemoration of this year’s World Day Against Child Labour, we thought of giving you a snapshot of what we, in the NGO community are doing to address this malaise. Since Malawi ratified the ILO conventions 138 on minimum age and 182 on worst forms of child labour, NGOs have continued to play a complementary role to government efforts in the elimination of child labour.
