Solidaridad and project partners finalized our programme Joint Forces to Tackle Child Labour: from Gold Mines to Electronics. This project was implemented between July 2017 and March 2021 in artisanal and small-scale mines and mining (ASM) communities in Busia, Uganda. The aim was to establish a sustainable, traceable gold supply chain that creates a better future for miners and their families, and to contribute to preventing and reducing child labour in the ASM communities in Busia.
We have worked on this programme jointly with out partner organizations Fairphone, Fairtrade Foundation, Hivos/Stop Child Labour Coalition, UNICEF, Royal Philips, EWAD, Fairtrade Africa, and The Impact Facility. The programme was made possible with the financial support from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). You can view and download the end term evaluation report (executive summary and case studies) below.
