IIECL is a not-for-profit, 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization register within the United States. Ninety (90) percent of all of IIECL funding is used for direct costs to provide services that meet its defined objectives. Contributions can be directed for any of the following key activities:
Help IIECL provide financial and technical support for small NGOs in third world countries who are trying to serve the needs of children caught in abusive child labor. Your contribution can help provide direct assistance to children, assist with helping to build the community-based NGOs capacity for service delivery, and/or provide technical support to enable the NGO to more effectively deliver services to children. These services can include, but is not limited to: rescue and repatriation of children who have been caught in abusive child labor, implementing child labor prevention strategies, providing basic education and other training assistance, social messaging and community mobilization to eliminate child labor and building the capacity of community-based NGOs to deliver these services effectively.
Help IIECL conduct research and studies on child labor in areas where further information and program assistance is needed. This can include: conducting desk and other on-site studies that identify child labor needs that are currently unmet, designing child labor intervention strategies, evaluating programs to determine best practices and lessons learned, and identifying and mobilizing community-based NGOs that can assist with service delivery.
Help IIECL work with businesses and industries to modernize their labor standard protections and ensure that their production practices are socially accountable. This could include providing examining the involvement of children in their production activities, evaluating their current monitoring system, designing or enhancing their monitoring mechanisms, and providing training for their monitors and managers on socially accountable production practices and effective monitoring techniques.
Help IIECL grow as an organization and enable itself to better carry out all of its objectives. This includes assisting the organization to improve its capacity to respond to information requests by students, teachers and other organizations needing assistance and background information. This enables IIECL to respond to individuals writing reports, stories, articles and other news programs that raise awareness about child labor in the United States and abroad. For example, IIECL is working to produce a web-movie on child labor that can be featured on our website and available in multiple languages. IIECL receives dozens of requests from students–at the junior high, high school and college levels–seeking background information and answers to questions for their papers or reports. We would like to be able to assist these students and continue to provide updated information IIECL’s online child labor database, NGO database, and through IIECL’s monthly publication of the Child Labor News Alerts.
Help IIECL to work with organizations and their staff to use good practices and proven effective approaches when planning and implementing programs to prevent or withdraw children from exploitative child labor. IIECL is working with numerous international and national NGOs and community based organizations to provide them with training and technical support to implement the PAVE methodology, use action research that includes a participatory process, develop vocational literacy curricula that is functional and relevant, and design innovative program strategies to address the complex needs of children and youth engaged in the worst forms of child labor.
Whatever your choice, we need your help and, as importantly, you actions to make a difference in the lives of children in the United States and abroad who are caught into the web of exploitation and abuse.
