The Centre and The Remedy Project Collaborate to Support Companies on Child Labour Remediation

The Centre for Child Rights and Business and The Remedy Project have joined forces to provide companies with practical support, information and resources to increase effective access to child labour remediation.

The collaboration signifies a mutual commitment to sharing expertise and resources, driven by a need for effective remediation programmes that enable children to grow up with dignity and hope. Globally, progress in eradicating child labour has stalled. At the same time, companies face increasing pressure to address human rights violations within their global supply chains, spurred by regulations on human rights due diligence. 

Effective remediation programmes are essential for breaking the cycle of child labour. We look forward to working together on various knowledge-sharing activities for businesses, such as webinars, focus groups, working group meetings, and developing joint publications. Through this collaboration, we are also keen to connect with private-sector clients seeking practical support in child labour remediation.


“We often have little visibility in the tiers of those companies’ supply chains with the greatest child labour risks. But even where we manage to look closer and identify child labour, companies (and governments) largely fail to provide effective access to remedy. More often than not, ‘combating child labour’ simply means ensuring children stay away from any processes associated with production, neglecting to reinstate the rights of children, through access to effective remedy. The Remedy Project brings extensive knowledge and experience in advocating for strengthened access to remedy. By joining forces with The Remedy Project, The Centre will bolster its efforts in both lobbying for and supporting businesses to do better and to continue our mission of providing tangible support to children whose fundamental rights have been violated.”–Ines Kaempfer, CEO, The Centre for Child Rights and Business

 "The collaboration between The Remedy Project and The Centre for Child Rights and Business merges over a decade of The Centre's in-depth work with our expertise in legal remediation to address child labour. This partnership is uniquely equipped to navigate the complexities of remediation by understanding the historical contexts of these issues and shaping future safeguards. We are committed to crafting interventions that go beyond the immediate extraction of children from labour, ensuring they have access to education, healthcare, and a supportive environment for holistic recovery and development. We stand at the forefront of a concerted effort to not only extract children from labour but also to address the root causes and craft sustainable pathways towards their well-being and advancement." –Archana Kotecha, CEO & Founder The Remedy Project

The Centre has been working with businesses on child labour issues in global supply chains for over a decade. It has a global network of staff and partners trained in child labour remediation case management in key sourcing regions. The Centre’s child labour remediation programme uses a strong child rights approach to maximise positive outcomes for children. To date, The Centre has remediated close to 1000 cases in a wide range of industries and settings. 

The Remedy Project’s mission is to transform how workers access remedy within global supply chains. The Remedy Project drives system-level change by providing expertise in responsible business conduct, grievance and remediation mechanisms, and forced labour. This is done to safeguard the rights of all workers in global supply chains, ensuring their access to effective remedies. Since its founding in 2020, The Remedy Project has worked across 20 jurisdictions and with over 30 partners, including businesses, UN agencies, governments, and NGOs.  

Together, we are committed to strengthening business accountability through effective child labour remediation solutions that always prioritise the well-being of children.
