Collaborate to advocate for promoting and protecting children’s rights

Together, Global March Against Child Labour members develop and implement advocacy strategies to urge governments, international organisations, inter-governmental regional bodies and the United Nations, to take action on ending child labour. Many members work together in their countries to advocate for relevant national, laws, policies, action and their effective implementation of the same.

Members can raise the profile of their work by being connected to the world’s only international network that works solely on ending child labour. They can benefit from opportunities to connect with like- minded organisations, journalists, subject experts, have their work featured on Global March’s website and take part in workshops , trainings and consultations organised by Global March Secretariat as well as its members around the world.
