ILO Child Labour Enterprise Training Workshop: In the upcoming month, BEST will be delivering a series of training in enterprise development to heads of households enrolled in the Child Labour Enterprise Program. This program works with children who were previously involved or at risk of being involved in child labour and attempts to put them back into the school system. It will also work with the parents in providing enterprise development training and loans to put them in an improved financial position to be able to provide for their families.
