1 out of 10 children are engaged in child labour across the globe. This totals 152 million children, with 73 million of them engaged in hazardous work. Just over 70% of child labour occurs in agriculture; as such our community projects focus on the cacao and cotton sector. READ MORE
We believe that sustainable solutions to the prevalence of child labour require a systemic thinking approach, as such we engage every stakeholder from the local communities at the source of supply chains, to global and domestic corporations in Japan, all the way to the consumers. READ MORE

As of December 2020
Every child has the right to play, learn, grow.
ACE aims to transform the world into a place where all children and youths are free to shape their own lives and capable of building a society that they want to live in.
Ending child labour is one of our core strategic goals.
We believe that achieving this goal in the long-term requires addressing every level of the global supply chain. As such, we operate through international cooperation, supporting rural communities in Asia and Africa, collaborating with private corporations, and engaging in consumer education.
We are a Japanese NGO active in international advocacy to protect children from exploitation across the globe.
