World Vision Receives DOL Grant to Combat Exploitative Child Labor

The grant is targeted at Ethiopia.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of International Labor Affairs has announced the award of a $10 million cooperative agreement with World Vision to implement a project that addresses exploitative labor among children in Ethiopia, according to a news release.

"We know when youth are provided skills training and career services that align with needs in the jobs market, they are less likely to be drawn into exploitative labor," said Deputy Undersecretary of Labor for International Affairs Carol Pier. "Our goal is to help vulnerable youth in Ethiopia develop the skills they need to make a successful transition into decent jobs."

The project will promote education and vocational training opportunities and seek to enhance livelihoods and access to social protection programs for youth and their households. Focusing specifically on the needs of girls, the project aims to address exploitative child labor by providing youth ages 14 to 17, with marketable skills and support to secure decent work. The project will also support President Obama's Young African Leaders Initiative.
