Child Workers in Asia (CWA) was established in 1985 as a support group for child workers in Asia, and the NGOs working with them. From a small group of five organizations, it now brings together over 78 groups/organizations working on child labour in 11 countries. It facilitates sharing of expertise and experiences between NGOs and strengthens their collaboration to jointly respond to the exploitation of working children in the region.

Organizational Objectives:

  • To promote the rights of working children within the contexts of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the ILO Conventions related to child labour;
  • To raise awareness and influence public opinion regarding child labour exploitation;
  • To provide a channel of communication and facilitate the sharing of information, materials, experiences and resources among people and organisations who are involved in child labour issues at various levels;
  • To co-ordinate action between NGOs in the region;
  • To assist and facilitate the formation of support groups for child workers at the country level; and 
  • To seek new ways for the protection of child workers and the prevention of child labour exploitation.

Program Objectives (2007-2012):

1. To advocate and monitor the ratification and implementation of all international conventions and standards on the elimination of child labour.

2. To lobby and monitor the implementation of government’s commitment to Education for All (EFA).

3. To lobby for laws that addresses the worst forms of child labour.

4. To protect children in armed conflict.
