DOL Announces Funding for Toolkit to Monitor International Child Labor Projects
The toolkit will support the design and implementation of systems for projects.
The U.S. Labor Department's Bureau of International Labor Affairs announced a $1 million competitive solicitation of applications for a cooperative agreement to develop a beneficiary monitoring toolkit for its international child labor elimination projects, according to a news release. The toolkit will support the design and implementation of systems to help these projects monitor the provision of services and the education and work status of children receiving services. These systems are already a requirement for all department-funded projects offering direct services to children and families as a strategy for reducing child labor in target countries.
Those who wish to apply must outline how they would develop the following two major project components: written guidelines and resources to be used by child labor elimination projects in their development and implementation of a beneficiary monitoring system; and a prototype beneficiary monitoring software/database tool.
The following groups are eligible to apply: commercial, international, educational or nonprofit organizations, including any faith-based, community-based, or public international organization.
