Child labour violates National Laws, which give effect to international labour conventions
already ratified by Uganda. It contributes to Employers’ poor corporate image and lowers

productivity. Indeed, it deprives the nation of skilled future labour as children become

engaged in Child Labour activities instead of going to school.

Employers are therefore urged to initiate and have policies at their workplaces that

discourage Child Labour, promote awareness about the dangers of Child Labour, support

schools, children’s education, communities, and workers in the effort to contribute

towards the elimination of the Worst Forms of Child Labour and all other forms of child

labour.

This booklet highlights the importance of the promotion of children’s education as

fundamental strategy towards elimination of child labour and the risks of child labour.

The booklet also highlights the importance of social dialogue as one of the major tools

that contributes towards elimination of child labour. While the big employers rarely use

children, there are many reports that out-growers linked to larger agribusinesses do.

The booklet further, provides the existing national legal framework on child labour and

education, it highlights best practices which are necessary for the elimination of Child

Labour and some essential actions that the employer’s fraternity is required to take

towards the elimination of Child Labour. Statistics, key points and information on Child

Labour are outlined, which need to be observed by all progressive Employers.

We thank the ILO-Geneva and its staff, the Government of Netherlands for the support

they have extended to FUE which has enabled the production of copies of this Booklet. All

Employers are therefore encouraged to make the best use of this document in their day

to day of their Human Resources and other policies within their respective enterprises.

Appreciation is further extended to FUE’s consultants most especially Mr. Otucu Bonny

and Mr. Gizamba Julius who have been responsible for compiling the information in the

booklet.
