Project to Address Exploitative Child Labor in Ethiopia: USDOL/ILAB intends to award up to $10,000,000 for a cooperative agreement(s) to one or more qualifying organizations to address exploitative child labor in Ethiopia by helping youth ages 14 to 17, with a focus on female youth, develop marketable skills to secure decent work and serve as leaders in their communities. The project will promote education and vocational training opportunities for youth and also will seek to enhance livelihoods and access to social protection programs for youth and their households. ILAB’s Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor and Human Trafficking (OCFT) will technically manage cooperative agreements awarded under this solicitation, and USDOL’s ETA will administer the cooperative agreements. The duration of the project(s) funded by this solicitation is four (4) years. The project start date will be negotiated upon award of individual cooperative agreement(s) but will be no later than December 31, 2014. ILAB leads USDOL’s efforts to ensure that workers around the world are treated fairly and are able to share in the benefits of the global economy. ILAB’s mission is to use all available international channels to improve working conditions, raise living standards, protect workers’ ability to exercise their rights, and address the workplace exploitation of children and other vulnerable populations. OCFT conducts and funds research, develops strategic partnerships, and funds an international technical cooperation program to eliminate the worst forms of child labor, forced labor, and human trafficking. OCFT-funded projects target children and youth under age 18. USDOL/ILAB is authorized to award and administer cooperative agreements by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014, Pub. Law 113-76 (2014).
