Project report for adults and children of the international campaign "Time to talk!”

Time to Talk! – Children’s views on children’s work – was initiated by Kindernothilfe, Save the Children Canada and terre des hommes Germany in March 2016.

The goal of Time to Talk! is to enable working children and young people to have their views on their work heard in local, national and global decision-making processes.

The starting point for the conception of the reports for adults and children is a survey of 1,800 child workers in 37 countries. The key findings of the survey were presented by Kindernothilfe, terre des hommes and other partner organisations in the negotiations at the IV. Conference on Child Labour organised by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the Argentine government in Buenos Aires in November 2017.

The project was preceded by the creation and illustration of the workshop cards for the development of the content with the children. These were the initiators and basis for the illustration style of the adult report.

This report offers a lively insight into the lives of working girls and boys. It shows their complex and multi-layered views and their desire for their views and proposals to be seriously considered in all political debates and decisions that affect them.

Magazine-like
and naive

The challenge with the adult report was to present comprehensive and complex content in a clear and interesting way. The result is a very "magazine-like" layout. The naïve, but also likeable style of illustration is intended to make it clear that in the end it is always about the children of the world.

On the road with Supermaia and Paul

The children's report was also also intended to present comprehensive, complex content in a clear and interesting way. For this reason, a very "magazine-like" layout and a somewhat naïve, but certainly likeable illustration style were chosen. As in the case of the adult report, both of these factors make it clear that the children of the world are at the centre of attention.

The adult report was published in four languages (German, English, French, Spanish) and the children's report even in nine languages (German, English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Nepalese, Thai, Kyrgyz and Swahili).
