The webinar will address supply chain solutions to China’s left-behind children problem.
The webinar, to take place on 9th March at 2pm London time, will address the fact that there are 62 million children living in China’s rural villages and towns without day-to-day care from their parents. These are the so-called left-behind children, whose parents move to large cities in search of work. This separation can put a significant strain on relationships, negatively impact children’s development, and has serious consequences on the well-being of workers.
The webinar takes a look at two highly successful worker well-being programmes from ICTI CARE to support domestic migrant toy workers with left-behind children in China, which are delivering real benefits.
Speakers at the webinar include Ines Kaempfer, executive director of Centre for Child-Rights and Corporate Social Responsibility – experts in improving the lives of children, young workers, and working migrant parents. It is also the implementation partner on ICTI CARE’s left-behind children programme. Ines will be joined by two speakers from two toy factories in China; Eddie Yeung, quality director at Best Top Toy factor, and Tracy Huang, compliance department, First Union, who will share their experiences of participating in the programme.
By the end of the webinar, attendees will have learnt more about China’s left-behind children problem, and understand how supply chain solutions can help address the issue. They will also hear how ICTI CARE’s left-behind children pilots have delivered benefits for workers, children and factories. To get involved and sign up to the webinar, click here.
