Latin America and the Caribbean U.S. Department of Labor 2003 2007

In 2003, the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) signed a cooperative agreement with DevTech to implement the Combating Child Labor through Education in the Dominican Republic project. The program works worked with the International Labor Organization, the Dominican Secretariats of Education and Labor, and other stakeholders to:

  • Raise awareness of the importance of education for all children and to mobilize a wide array of actors to improve and expand education infrastructures;
  • Strengthen national institutions and policies on education and child labor; and
  • Ensure the long-term sustainability of these efforts.
