Ethiopians Fighting Against Child Exploitation (E-FACE) - Child Labour Monitoring System

Ethiopians Fight Against Child Exploitation was a 4-year, $10 million project funded by the US Department of Labour and led by World Vision Ethiopia aimed at reducing child labour, primarily in the traditional weaving sector in three regions of Ethiopia.

Country/Region: Ethiopia
Dates/Duration: 2013 - 2014
Funded by: USDOL, World Vision US
Clients: World Vision Ethiopia, Cambridge Education

As part of the project, World Vision Ethiopia needed to enhance its child protection project systems. CGA was brought in to develop a bespoke Child Labour Monitoring Information System. The tool monitors beneficiary and household data amongst three partners using a synchronised database suitable for a low-connectivity environment.


The project has seen excellent success in the development of local child labour mechanisms, with 84% of target communities (project outcome indicator 7) having structures in place to eradicate child labour such as child protection committees or child labour monitoring committees.

The percentage of E-FACE supported children engaged in child labour decreased from 85% in 2012 to 1.4% in 2015.
