World Scouting And ILO
The International Labour Organisation (ILO) is working with World Scouting to address the issue of child labour. This is mainly done through the International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC).
IPEC's aim is to work towards the progressive elimination of child labour by strengthening national capacities to address child labour problems, and by creating a worldwide movement to combat it.
In 2004 World Scouting signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ILO/IPEC for a more formal commitment to the idea. In the past three years, several Scouting seminars and projects have taken action concerning youth employment, street children, and child labour in Egypt, Kenya, Ukraine, and Russia.
