CLARISSA Project Brief Information: 

VOC is implementing UK AID funded CLARISSA project to generate a strong evidence base and innovative solutions to address the worst forms of child labour (WFCL) in Nepal. It is neither a typical research programme, nor a typical NGO implementation programme – but is designed to build on the strengths and evidences in order to decrease the number of children in the WFCLs including Adult Entertainment Sector (AES) in Nepal. Its focus is on surfacing key drivers of the worst forms of child labour and developing interventions to counteract them (preventing push factors at community, family and individual level and pull factors from unethical business).

The primary beneficiaries of the project are the children in the worst forms of child labour and those who are vulnerable to being drawn into it. As result of the programme, the families of these children will benefit from greater resilience to shocks, better options for their children’s safe and healthy future and less intra-family stress and conflict. Businesses will benefit from practical solutions to child-labour free supply chains. Policy makers, NGOs, and researchers will benefit from knowledge of what works.   

The programme is designed around four major themes or ‘workstreams’ - Social Protection, Positive family dynamics and social norms, Reducing harm in supply chains and Building children’s agency and child-led coalitions

The consortium funded by UK Aid led by the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and other consortium partners are (in alphabetical order):

  • Child Hope UK
  • Consortium for Street Children 
  • Ethical Trading Initiative
  • Terre des homes

By taking a participatory, adaptive and child-centred approach to evidence and innovation generation, and using intentional scaling strategies, in each country activities will generate evidence of the drivers of and effective innovative interventions to reduce WFCL.
