What role can you play?

Hi All,

Well, I will start by enlightening the youth on the causes and consequences of child labour and on how they could become advocates on Child labour issues in their homes and communities. Young people are good advocates because of their energy and creativity. Their channels of social interaction could be used for advocacy purposes on child labour, e.g. social meetings, online networking sites, drama groups in their communities etc.

Hi Shining Star. Thanks for the ideas - are these examples of networks that you are already actively engaged with? Hope we can have additional suggestions from others in the group. Are people already caught up in the Women's Day 'festivities'?

Hi Shining Star, Your contribution is great, but how can the youth imploy their channels of social interaction to advocate against child labour in an enterpise?

Hi Luckyluka,

Well the youth can be encouraged to use these channels to inform and enlighten others on the issues of child labour e.g. on the Online Networking Site like Facebook, the youth can start a discussion on facebook among their peers and other facebook users on the causes and consequences of child labour

Shining star,

I like the aspect of advocacy you mentioned, but to whom and with who?
