Video Game Teaches Kids How to Combat Child Labor in Jordan

Global Communities/CHF has collaborated with a local organization, Power of Knowledge, to develop an interactive and engaging game to help to fight child labor in Jordan. The game, which can be played in Arabic or English, uses real life scenarios and case studies that kids can relate to and encourages players to use their own knowledge and critical thinking skills to make decisions about possible solutions.
The game was developed as part of the Combating Exploitive Child Labor Through Education (CECLE) program, funded program by the US Department of Labor. The goal of the program is to remove children from the worst forms of child labor and prevent additional children from entering into such dangerous activities, while providing them with direct educational services and other non-formal education. Through CECLE, Global Communities/CHF also focused on strengthening policies on child labor,  building capacity of national institutions and raising awareness of the importance of education and research on child labor.
