The objective of the training package on “The role of cooperatives in eliminating Child Labour” is to raise awareness of management, staff and members of agricultural cooperatives about child labour so that they are able to decide on and implement a set of actions that will contribute to the prevention and elimination of child labour within the cooperatives’ and members’ operations as well as in their communities. It uses a situated learning approach, where participants are actively involved in their learning experience and learning focuses on skills and competencies specific to their professional practices. The training package builds on previous materials on cooperatives and child labour as well as ILO’s practical experience. The training package contains: a Facilitator guide to train field trainers and a Facilitator Guide to train management, staff and members of agricultural cooperatives.

The translation of the training package was supported by the ILO Country Office for Argentina and the Regional Initiative Latin America and the Caribbean Free of Child Labour: platform made up of 30 countries in the region, employers' and workers' organizations, which jointly promote national policies to prevent and eliminate child labour.
