Protecting the rights of children and youth, and raising awareness of child labour across the globe, requires us to amplify their voices. Alongside our community projects, we act as amplifiers of their experiences, needs and ideas to the general public further down the supply chain.
WHAT I REALISED WHEN CONFRONTING CHILD LABOUR
The Door of Change was published by Shuei Co. Publishing on our 20th anniversary. It explores the changes experienced by children in Ghana and India who were able to enrol in schools, as well as the changes undergone by adults in their villages, and how they transformed their communities and their lives through ACE's support. This book relays their stories.
LECTURES & WORKSHOPS
Between 2008-2018, we held workshop and lecture sessions at 756 locations, including schools, universities, organisations etc. reached were attended by 65,187 people in total.
ACE has designed education materials (Japanese) to inform the public, children and consumers, of the reality of child labour and how each individual can contribute to its elimination.
FUNDRAISING & EVENTS
Our network of volunteers and our staff members hold events across Japan, selling various products to raise money for our community projects, and increase awareness of the issue of child labour as well as the rights of children and youths.
