HACE is a data start-up, generating cross-sectoral analysis on factors affecting child labour internationally.

We take a different approach to development by using a unique and innovative mix of data science, social science and cutting-edge AI to provide analyses for both the public and private sectors. We use these data and analyses to drive sustainable and impactful change for child labourers internationally.

We use secondary data, processed and collated by HACE into easy-to-use, interactive, customised dashboards.

This means that decision-makers can implement evidence-based policies and effectively allocate resources to prevent the negative impact of child labour on all stakeholders.

Data is highly valuable for alleviating child labour, yet its potential is relatively untapped, and organisations struggle to create value and prioritise opportunities that their own data provide in alleviating child labour. We will provide insight into both public and private data to establish customised recommendations for our clients.

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8.7 comprises modern slavery, forced labour, human trafficking and child labour.


Hundreds of organisations in the public and private sector are working to eradicate modern slavery; where estimates stand at around 40.3 million people, including children.

The global estimates of child labour currently stand at 152.5 million children worldwide, increasing due to COVID-19, which is nearly three times that of modern slavery.

However, child labour is the most commonly looked over part of SDG 8.7. The United Nations (UN) have declared 2021 as the International Year for the Elimination of Child Labour, and we at HACE will be at the forefront of the work to combat child labour.
