• Making decent work a reality for migrant workers
    Decent work and the search for jobs lie at the heart of international migration and development debates.

World Day Against Child Labour 2014 (To place in approriate Catogery)

Today, June 12, 2014, Guyana joins voices across the globe to call for the elimination of Child Labour, which is work that deprives children of their child hood.
While the statistics show a decline there are still 168 million children worldwide in child labour; 85 million of them are in hazardous work. Alarmingly, there are 13 million (8.8%) children in child labour in Latin America and the Caribbean.

 

The Ministry of Labour, Human Services and Social Security has an advocacy mandate to the elimination of Child Labour. Its daily operations include identifying all forms of Child Labour, investigating and prosecuting individuals found in violation of the laws of Guyana, as it pertains to employment of children. The country has also signed sereval international Conventions obligating it to prevent child labour, including the International Labour Organisation's Convention No. 182 on the Eradication of the worst forms of Child Labour.

As we raise our voices to condemn child labour, the Ministry urges everyone to play a part in eliminating child labour by reporting all cases.
