Page 100 Annexure A Draft 4.10, October 2003 21. National Programme of Action for Children in South Africa (NPA) Policy measures requiring the attention of the above institution, as provided for in the CLAP, are collated below. Cross-refer to the number of the action step in the main text for a discussion of the background. (4) Poverty alleviation initiatives, including rollout of grants, should be targeted in child labour hot spots. This should not be interpreted as a criterion for access to the grants, but rather as how to target information campaigns and registration blitzes. Lead institution: DrSD (rollout of grants). Secondary institution: NT, NPA, DTI. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Once off cost: minimal. Recurrent cost: minimal. Time line: within two years of adoption of policy. (5) Areas where children spend long hours in subsistence agriculture should be one of the criteria for targeting poverty alleviation initiatives. Lead institution: DrSD. Secondary institutions: NPA, DTI. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Once off cost: minimal (identification of such areas). Recurrent cost: moderate. Time line: within four years of adoption of policy. ILO funding: cover once off costs. (18) A national public awareness campaign on child labour should be designed and implemented: substantial initial campaign with a sustained presence thereafter. Lead institution: DL. Secondary institutions: NPA, CLIG, SAPS,DJ, DC (each regarding its own line function), NGOs. New policy? Yes. Once-off cost: significant. Recurrent cost: significant. ILO funding: to cover initial design and part of initial implementation, the remainder having to be borne by the relevant line department. Time line: to be introduced as soon as possible after adoption of policy; initial stage of campaign to run over three years. (34) Indicators of success of the Child Labour Action Programme should be developed. Lead institution: DL; Secondary institution: NPA. New policy: Yes. One off cost: moderate. Recurrent costs: minimal. Time line: To be introduced within one year of adoption of policy. ILO funding: to cover one-off development costs. (68) The DL should set guidelines for acceptable kinds of household chores, and reasonable amounts of time children should spend on them. Guidelines should make it clear that children learn and benefit from a moderate amount of chores, provided the tasks are age appropriate and fairly distributed between household members. This approach is in line with the African Charter's provision stating that children have responsibilities towards their families. Lead institution: DL. Secondary institutions: DrSD*, NPA. New policy? Yes. Once off cost: minimal. Time line: to be done within two years of adoption of policy (75) Subsistence agriculture should be one of Child Labour Action Programme's priority areas because of the high number of children working in this sector, and because of the very long hours that they work. Lead institution: DL. Secondary institution: DrA, NPA. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Once off cost: moderate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
