Report on Child Labour in Gold Mining

Author: PLA Uganda

Platform for Labour Action (PLA) in collaboration with Ecological Christian Organisation (ECO) and Somero Uganda, have received support from Terre de Hommes Netherlands to implement a three year project to end child exploitation in the worst forms of child labour in domestic work and the gold mining areas of Bugiri, Namayingo and Moroto districts of Uganda.

The overall goal of the project is to contribute to progressive elimination of the worst forms of child labour and the improvement of children’s rights in Uganda. Among others, one of the key project activities was to first establish a baseline in understanding the intricacies and impact of child labour that currently exist at the identified project areas. To achieve this, a rapid situation analysis was carried out and all factors assessed.

This report provides findings and recommendations from the situational analysis on child labour in gold mining areas of Bugiri, Namayingo and Moroto districts of Uganda. This study was carried out between March 2017 and May 2017 by Platform for Labour Action (PLA) in partnership with Ecological Christian Organisation (ECO) and Somero Uganda.
