Winrock supports child labor reduction by developing the capacity to address it and by providing children, parents, communities and governments with the tools to pursue alternatives to child labor. An estimated 168 million children around the world are engaged in child labor, and about half of them are coerced or work in hazardous conditions. Since 2002, Winrock and local partners have worked in more than 25 countries around the world, protecting more than 75,000 children from exploitive child labor. Winrock programs emphasize smallholder agriculture to boost livelihoods and provide alternatives. Our approach actively engages governments and communities to work toward integrated, sustainable solutions. For all Services and Solutions, click here.
