ToR - Consultancy to deliver a training of trainers on the SCREAM programme


Child labour remains one of the most significant challenges in global efforts to promote human rights and economic development. In Saudi Arabia, child labour presents a significant challenge, with the 2011 census indicating that 15 percent of the population, comprising children and young adults, are engaged in labour. These children often work long hours, with a substantial portion spending more than 12 hours a day outside the home, primarily in human trafficking, agriculture, and family businesses. Despite efforts to combat this issue, including the Saudi Cabinet’s approval of a National Policy to Prevent Child Labour, challenges persist, particularly for children of migrant workers who lack adequate legal protection.

The Supporting Children’s Rights through Education, the Arts and the Media (SCREAM) program is an innovative initiative designed to actively engage and educate young people on the issue of child labour. By integrating educational content with creative expression, SCREAM empowers youth to become advocates for change, fostering a new generation that is informed, compassionate, and vocal against the injustices of child labour.

The importance of SCREAM lies in its participatory approach, which not only raises awareness but also equips participants with the tools to take action. Through arts and media, the program transcends language and cultural barriers, making the complex issue of child labour accessible and relatable to children and adolescents worldwide. This methodology encourages critical thinking and problem-solving, enabling young people to conceptualize and implement community-based solutions to combat child labour.

Spreading awareness through SCREAM is crucial because it directly contributes to the global fight against child labour. By informing and involving the youth, the program creates a ripple effect, as these young advocates influence their peers, families, and communities. The spread of awareness is the first step towards mobilization, leading to increased public pressure on policymakers and industries to enforce laws and regulations that protect children’s rights. Ultimately, SCREAM is not just an educational tool but a catalyst for social change, aiming to eradicate child labour and build a future where every child has the freedom to learn, play, and grow.

Accordingly, the ILO is working with the Family Affairs Council and the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development to support the implementing of the National Policy to Prevent Child Labour by organising a training of trainers on understanding child labour and using SCREAM to compliment the nation-wide efforts to tackle the persistent issue of child labour in the Kingdom.
