The National Policy on the Elimination of Child Labour is a response to the aforementioned challenges. It seeks to capitalize on and maximize the effects of the existing macro and sectoral policies on child labour. It also aims at consolidating the gains from these initiatives, build on the synergy and mainstream the child labour interventions in national, county and sectoral policies. The policy focuses on strategies that are aimed at prevention, identification, withdrawal, rehabilitation and reintegration of children involved in all forms of child labour. The ultimate vision is to have a child labour free society. A key component of this policy is the strong institutional framework and integrated implementation, monitoring and evaluation mechanism. Policy guidance is anchored on the National Steering Committee on Child Labour, the National Labour Board and the National Council for Children Services. Implementation will be coordinated by the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Services in strict consultation with the network of state and non-state actors engaged in activities towards elimination of child labour in Kenya. It is our expectation that lie strategies contained in this policy will lead to effective and sustainable reduction in child labour.
