Children Out of Mining: Community engagement

July 10, 2020
Child Labor, Mining, Children

Pact recognizes that any intervention to address child labor in mining must take into consideration the interconnected influences of family, community, and society on a child's life. Therefore, a core activity across all of Pact's Children Out of Mining projects is community engagement, in order to ensure that interventions involve all stakeholders who directly or indirectly influence the trajectory of the community’s children. Community engagement also ensures that activities are as relevant as possible to the specific context and are locally owned and therefore have a better chance of being sustained.
