Over the coming two years, Glasnost will be doing the communication, PR and activations for the coalition Stop Kinderarbeid (Stop child labour).
Stop Kinderarbeid is a coalition coordinated by Hivos. The coalition is formed by the Algemene Onderwijsbond, FNV Mondiaal, Hivos, ICCO Cooperation and Kerk in Actie, de Landelijke India Werkgroep (National India Workgroup) and Stichting Kinderpostzegels Nederland. Stop Kinderarbeid attempts to ban all forms of child labor and calls out to citizens, companies and governments to join them in their journey. Every child deserves a proper basic education.
“It is really satisfying to contribute to the ambition of Stop Kinderarbeid with our daily activities,” says Janiek Braaksma, partner at Glasnost. “Politics, business life and consumers need to know what is happening in the gold industry and should not be hesitant about taking on responsibility. All children need to go to school, that is the goal.”
Last month the ‘Goud in Handen’ campaign began, focused completely on the million children who work in goldmines every day. The gold ends up in our phones, tablets and laptops. Visit our campaign website for more information.
