Combating child domestic labour

Haiti Strengthening Institutions and Civil Society
April 2018
July 2020

Carried out as a consortium, this project aims to combat child domestic labour in 8 communes of the South Department through protection, prevention, support for schooling and awareness-raising activities benefiting 760 households. ACTED thus plans to reunite 350 child domestic workers with their families, to support the schooling of 994 children and to support 760 parents through a programme of socio-economic reinforcement and parental education. In addition, 70 social service providers, in particular school structures, as well as community actors will be trained on child protection and child labour issues. This will enable providers to respond appropriately to the needs of child domestic workers or those at risk of becoming domestic workers, and to strengthen community involvement in child protection and guidance issues.
