DOL Commits $5 Million to Fight Child Labor in Zambia

The agency is a new partner in the “Let Girls Learn” initiative

The DOL has announced a $5 million agreement to reduce child labor in rural Zambia among adolescent girls by increasing access to quality formal and non-formal education and training. The agreement is with Winrock International, which will provide direct educational assistance to 2,500 girls at high risk in child labor.

 

“Unleashing the potential of girls and young women around the world through education and access to opportunity is one of the greatest legacies we can leave for our children’s generation and the generations that follow,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez. “We must continue to break down barriers like education inequality in order to fully realize this potential and harness a future of shared global prosperity.”

 

Also known as the EMPOWER project, the agreement will promote peer support, business and social networks for adolescent girls.
