The purpose of this program is rooted in a commitment to ethical business practices and the eradication of child labor from global supply chains. Developed based on the comprehensive ILO Supplier Guidance on Child Labor Prevention, the program is specifically tailored for upper/mid-level managers in supply chains. The curriculum, delivered through engaging visual storytelling, followed by knowledge-reinforcing quizzes in Quizrr’s digital training platform, addresses critical aspects such as definitions of children’s rights, child labor and hazardous work; robust prevention strategies that include key aspects such as age verification, best practices in recruitment (HR), and remediation covering different scenarios including children accompanying their parents to the work floor and young workers in hazardous conditions.

Initially focused on the Bangladesh and Türkiye markets, the collective objective of the training program is to positively impact the lives of children and families by reinforcing children's rights and supplying companies with tools to mitigate the risk of child labor in their value chains.

I am really happy that we are teaming up with Quizrr. This training won’t solve the child labor issue in our supply chain – but it has the potential to sow some much-needed seeds for positive change. For example, our training emphasizes how we can avoid hazardous work for youth. Any factory that follows this guidance will concretely contribute towards the elimination of child labor. Working with Quizrr will undoubtedly allow us to extend that message to more companies and suppliers!
