Verité, in partnership with Winrock and Lawyers without Borders, is helping to implement CLEAR II, a project to reduce the prevalence of child labor in eight countries. This four-year project which began in 2014, is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor and addresses the circumstances that contribute to child labor and builds on the CLEAR I project, which is being implemented by the ILO. Verité’s role in this partnership includes providing technical support to public officials and private companies to reduce child labor. Eight countries are involved in this project including Nepal, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Honduras, Panama, and Belize, with two others still to be named.
Verité is currently implementing a four-year project to improve government commitments and performance on reducing hazardous child labor and forced child labor in eight countries. Verité is a partner on this multi-country initiative—known as Country Level Engagement and Assistance to Reduce Child Labor, or CLEAR II—with Winrock International, a global NGO working to empower the disadvantaged and increase economic opportunity.
