Haiti - Social : Project to combat domestic child labor
With funding from the Government of Canada, UNICEF is coordinating the implementation of the "Child Domestic Labor Project". Several partners are participating in this project including the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the National Institute for Professional Training (INFP) which implements the professional training component in three departments of the country, the South, Grand'Anse and the West.

This project to combat child domestic labor aims to implement interventions relating to the prevention of situations of exploitation, the development of protection and care mechanisms for children at risk or victims of neglect, abuse, violence and exploitation. It also aims to provide support for children placed in households as domestic workers to live their childhood in full respect of their rights, and, for those of working age, to exercise a professional activity respectful of their development and labor law rules.

The training made it possible to reach a first class of nearly 834 young people, including 300 from Grand'Anse. The program aims ultimately to train 1,700 young people in the three departments targeted by the project. The sessions focused on three main sectors including sanitary plumbing, tailoring, agricultural and livestock techniques. The young people took more than 200 hours of lessons in total, the minimum required to obtain the INFP certificate. Tools were given to young graduates so that they could start their activities.
