Hotspot start date: July 2018
The Rajasthan hotspot is implementing a Child Labour Free Jaipur Program that aims to progressively eliminate child labour through a united strategy involving apparel and handicraft businesses, the state government, enforcement systems and communities.
The hotspot is distinctive in promoting cooperation between Rajasthan and the state of Bihar to remove children in Jaipur from exploitation in workshops, pursue justice against traffickers and give comprehensive reintegration support to the children in their home state. The program also has a major focus on outreach and partnership with local businesses to create systems change in business supply chains.
