A collection of wonderful music dedicated to the fight against child labour.


The Music against Child Labour Initiative, which was launched in 2013 by the ILO together with some of the world’s greatest musicians and a number of important international music organizations, calls on musicians worldwide to dedicate a concert or song to the struggle against child labour.


From the 12th of April to the 12th of June (World Day Against Child Labour) the Initiative’s partners call on the global music community to join them in raising awareness about child labour and about the value of music and arts education in combating it by either dedicating a concert to the cause or a song.

The aims of the Music Initiative are set out in the Music against Child Labour Initiative’s Manifesto.
