Fourthly, 4. Global Conference on the
Sustained Eradication of Child Labour which was organized in November 2017 is
an important conference which is working on the global solution. It is
cooperating with Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and have the aim of
finishing all kinds of child labor. Finally, there are some other international
and non-governmental organizations which are working on this issue such as IIECL,
Global Vision, Global Giving, Global March and UNICEF. In conclusion, these
programs, conferences, projects and organizations are very influential for the
global and effective solution.

 

            As
many other countries, we, the Republic of Paraguay, are also working on this
issue very effectively and actively in our country. First of all we have
ratified all the international conventions about child labor such as but not
limited to the Minimum Age Convention, the Worst Forms of Child Labor
Convention and the Optional on the Scale of the Sale of Children Convention.
Furthermore, our government have implemented National Strategy to Prevent
Forced Labor and National Strategy for the Prevention and Eradication of Child
Labor and Protection of Working Adolescents. These conventions and strategies
are extremely essential for eliminating the problem of lack of laws. In our
country, there are many children which are facing worst forms of child labor.
For instance, criadazgo system is a big threat for our children. In this system,
wealthy families hire poor children for working in their domestic jobs. Also,
in Chaco and some other places children are mostly working in farms and
factories. Finally, children are working in The Paraguayan People’s Army by
carrying inventory and sometimes fighting with the soldiers. Thus, our
government is trying to reduce the number of these children by implementing
national and international strategy/action plans. In conclusion, we are fully
aware of the fact that child labor is a huge problem for all of us and we are
trying to resolve this problem by our new national policies, action plans and
international conventions in order to support the global combat against child
labor.

            As
it has been mentioned before many NGOs and international organizations are
working on this issue and their solution proposals are highly essential. We,
Republic of Paraguay, have also some solution proposals for this issue. To
begin with, the poverty problem has to be eliminated. It will be achieved by
putting the families, which are struggling with poverty and sending their
children to work, on salary and providing them a job opportunity in order to
prevent them to force their children to work in any kinds of labor. When the
families or caregivers earn the money that they need for sustaining their
lives, they will not force their children to work and the child labor rates
will decrease hugely. Further, the families that contribute to the child labor
should be detected and their salaries should be put on by the government and
they should be provided the basic needs. Secondly, lack of education should be
wiped out especially in developing and undeveloped states in order to eliminate
illiteracy and change families’ wrong perception. This will be done by
increasing the number of education facilities and enhancing the public
awareness in order to eliminate the perception in the society and educate
children to work in high educated and high salaried jobs in the future. The
government should establish new schools and improve the transportation to the
schools by building roads especially in rural areas and increasing the number
of transportation vehicles in order to assist children which want to go to
school but aren’t able to. Also, there should be awareness campaigns in order
to influence parents that finds schools unnecessary and send their children to
work. Finally, the lack of laws should be wiped out. When there is lack of laws
in a country, there will be no limitations for the child employers so the child
labor rates will increase. Thus, every member state should revise their
policies and implement national strategies/plans which prohibit child labor
strictly with solid laws. In conclusion, we, the Republic of Paraguay, believe
that these solution proposals will be efficient for the global and sustainable
solution for this highly crucial and critical issue that is threatening all of
us.
