Action against Child Exploitation (ACE)

Mission of the organization

ACE is a Non-Governmental, Non-Profit Organization based in Japan that address the issues of child labour around the world.There are 168 million children around the world who cannot receive an education and are in danger of injury or disease because of hazardous labour. We take action for the abolition and prevention of Child Labor with the citizens in Japan, and in our project areas. Our projects are in Japan, India, and Ghana. In recent years, Child labor is a great concern in the world. Kailash Satyarthi, who is the founder of the Global March Against Child Labor, which inspired the creation of ACE, received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. "Sustainable Development Goals" adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, targets an end to child labor by 2025. Since worldwide 60% of all child laborers work in agriculture, we focus on the Cocoa and Cotton industries. We operate not only through International cooperation activity, but also by collaborating with private corporations, and engaging in consumer education, to find solutions to the issue in Japan.
