5x5 Stepping Stones

for creating

Child Labour Free Zones

SCL - Stop Child Labour
May 2015

The handbook offers practical advice and sparks of inspiration for creating child labour free zones. Although the concept of child labour free zones has universal characteristics, there is no one way to do it. Rural areas where most people are farmers need a different approach from urban areas where people work in factories or as street vendors. Areas where many migrant families work require a different strategy from more remote or 'stable' communities.

The handbook is divided into five chapters that each present five areas for thought and action: 5 x 5 stepping stones for creating child labour free zones. These stepping stones do not necessarily imply a chronological timeline or rigid rules on how to carry out the process. Rather, these stepping stones present a set of ingredients you can pick and choose from to make your own recipe that fits the circumstances of the area where you work.
