Applications being accepted for Spring 2012 Emily Grants

The International Initiative to End Child Labor (IIECL) and the Emily Sandall Foundation are pleased to announce 12 mini-grant opportunities available to individuals, schools, and non-governmental organizations worldwide. The theme for this round of grants is to support research and information gathering, documented by photos or video on worst forms of child labor that exists in local communities. However, applications that focus on other strategies to end child labor will also be considered.


If you are a young person, teacher, school or NGO working with children and/or youth and need a small amount of funds to support a project idea to help end exploitative child labor, we want to hear your ideas. In collaboration with the Emily Sandall Foundation, ECL will be awarding 12 Emily grants in the spring of 2012.


Research activities to be funded should include a well-rounded overview of factors that contribute to child labor, including economic, cultural, educational, political, health or other. Given that this is primary research, footnotes may not be required. However, if other research on this topic of child labor has been conducted, this should be footnoted and appropriately cited. The research should include: 1) factors that contribute to the targeted worst form of child labor; 2) estimate of the level and extent of child labor in the targeted geographic area; 3) photos or video that document the research on the situation of children engaged in the targeted worst forms of child labor; 4) proposed strategy to address one or more of the contributing factors to the targeted form of child labor; and 5) identification of key stakeholders who could play a role in eliminating the targeted form of child labor in the geographic area.


Applications are due by midnight March 31, 2012.
