To participate in the programme, you must follow 3 steps.
If your company has already taken certain steps, you may be able to skip those in consultation with us.
- You can ask for an orientation interview with our advisors by email or by telephone. After the interview, you complete the mandatory quick scan. We use the quick scan to advise you on your next step.
- Risk assessment: analyse the risks of child labour in your production chain. Analyse in-house processes that may contribute to child labour. You can do this yourself or ask for our help. Use the 'FBK Guideline Risk Analysis 2020'.
- At the end of this phase, you can apply for a subsidy for Project A and/or Project B.
2. Local Impact Research and company analysis (Project A)
After the risk assessment in Step 1, you will start your research into child labour on-site and in your business' or businesses' production chain:
- Stakeholder analysis: together with local experts, you identify vulnerable groups and other stakeholders;
- Local field research: check if your production chain involves child labour;
- Research the underlying causes of child labour in your production chain;
- Analyse in-company processes and determine to which extent they prevent child labour.
3. Local project and improving internal business processes (Project B)
After you have completed step 2, you will:
- start on-site activities aimed at ending child labour, and
- take due diligence measures to improve in-company processes.
Local project (Project B)
- Local measures in the country where the project takes place: you make sure that you carry out local measures to end and prevent child labour.
- Local monitoring: you check the impact of the local measures and adjust them where necessary.
Improving in-company processes (Project B)
- Adjusting in-company processes: you ensure that your organisation will carry out internal measures aimed at ending and preventing child labour.
- Internal monitoring: you check your in-company measures and adjust them where necessary.
- Transparency: you inform your customers and stakeholders on how your company will reduce the risk of child labour in your chain.
At the end of this phase, you write a final report. In this report, you show the achievements of your project. You also explain how the measures will remain effective after the project has ended.
