Child Labour Free Zone areas All the above programmes and projects have received ILO/IPEC support, extending over two decades since its inception in 1992. 3.2 Implementation of ILO/IPEC Programme The partnership approach was introduced by the Government at the onset of the Kenya Country Programme (KCP) in 1992. Different stakeholders were requested to develop what was termed Action Programmes (APs). The first beneficiaries included four Government ministries: the Ministry of Labour, which was hosting ILO/IPEC; Home Affairs, which was hosting the Department for Children Services; Education, which was dealing with education and touching the lives of many children; and the Ministry of Planning (Central Bureau of Statistics). The second group of implementers were the social partners of Ministry of Labour, namely; Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) and Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE). The third group included quasi-government departments: Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (electronic media); Kenya Institute of Administration; Nairobi City Council; Kisii District Children Advisory Committee; and the Malindi District Children Advisory Committee. The final group in implementation was the Association of Media Women in Kenya (AMWIK); Undugu Society of Kenya (USK), which was dealing with street children; the Child Welfare Society of Kenya (CWSK), which is an NGO with national outlook; and ANPPCAN. Thus, between 1992 and 2002, the ILO/IPEC had supported 68 action programmes and 16 small projects, better known as mini projects. The programmes and projects were implemented by 22 organizations that included government ministries, social partners of the Ministry of Labour (i.e. the

CMI REPORT THE ROLE OF ADVOCACY AGAINST CHILD LABOUR 2015: 2 7 central Organization of Trade Unions – COTU and the Federation of Kenya Employers – FKE) and CSOs and FBOs. The ANPPCAN Regional Office was one of the implementing organizations. Since the Kenya Country programme, better known in Kenya, as the International Country Programme to Eliminate Child Labour (IPEC) in the 1990s, many organizations, both state and non-state actors, have participated in child labour programmes. During the period 2002–2012, the implementation of the Action Programmes remained the task of government ministries; social partners of Ministry of Labour, CSOs and FBOs, universities and other research institutions. However, the period 2005–2010 saw a decline of participation by government ministries such as Department for Children Services and the Ministry of Labour. Participation by the ANPPCAN Regional Office also declined and it only participated in the implementation of Time- Bound Programme (PoS) for only 18 months. The challenge facing the ILO/IPEC programmes was their discrete nature. These programmes were not designed to support each other, making continuity and sustainability almost impossible. Although ILO/IPEC was seen as the funding partner, it is apparent that IPEC depended on individual donors.

    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.
