The Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor and Human Trafficking (OCFT) here at the U.S. Department of Labor's International Bureau of Labor Affairs (USDOL/ILAB) will be undertaking a competitive review of grant proposals during the week of August 4th in Washington, D.C. for the FY08 Combating Exploitive Child Labor through Education in Guinea Project. The projects that we fund aim to achieve five major goals: 1) Withdraw or prevent children from involvement in exploitive child labor through the provision of direct educational services; 2) Strengthen policies on child labor and education, the capacity of national institutions to combat child labor, and formal and transitional education systems that encourage children engaged in or at-risk of engaging in exploitive labor to attend school; 3) Raise awareness of the importance of education for all children and mobilizing a wide array of actors to improve and expand education infrastructures; 4) Support
research and the collection of reliable data on child labor; and 5) Ensuring the long-term sustainability of these efforts. By increasing access to basic education, projects funded by USDOL help nurture the development, health, safety, and enhanced future employability of children engaged in or at-risk of entering exploitive labor in geographic areas or economic sectors with a high incidence of exploitive child labor.
Given your background and expertise, especially your PhD dissertation research on the Republic of Guinea and work on the social reintegration of ex-combatant youths, we think that you may be interested and especially well-suited to help us review these grant applications, as we are looking for people with experience with experience with Guinea, the U.S. Government, child labor, etc. to give the Department an external perspective.
If you think you may be interested and/or available for this or future application reviews, we would greatly appreciate your letting us know. Also, if you have any colleagues who you think would be qualified and interested to serve on the panel, please feel free to forward this message and have them get in touch with us.
Thank you for your time and attention.
