Golden future for former gold mining children

A group of 64 former child labourers have received their vocational qualifications during a festive graduation ceremony in Moroto, Uganda. The children used to do hazardous labour in the small-scale gold mines of Moroto district.

With the help of Terre des Hommes Netherlands and partner Eco Uganda, they have left the mines to follow a vocational training of their choice that offers them a better perspective for their future.

In addition to their diploma in welding or tailoring, the children have also received a so-called start-up kit, with essentials for their specific vocation.

The kit consists of either welding equipment or a sewing machine with accessories.
