Uganda has one of the worst forms of child labour in the world. According to ILO Convention No. 182 (1999), the term Worst Forms of Child Labour means child slavery, human trafficking, dept bondage, child prostitution, drug trafficking, and any works thus harm the children. Child Labour is a complex and multifaceted problem, and addressing it will require sustained efforts from all stakeholders, including government, civil society, private sectors, and international organization such as ILO. However, despite the progress that Uganda has made for the past few years, it all come to a major meltdown when the Covid-19 leads the spike number of child labour. The study assesses the ILO's effectiveness in implementing Alliance 8.7 in Uganda to combat forced labour and child labour. Key indicators of success include reducing the number of child labour exploitation, enforcing labour inspections, and enhancing stakeholder coordination. The data shown by Uganda Bureau of Statistic resulted in the increase in child labour from 2018 to 2021 by approximately 201.48%. This has becomes the major backdown for stating that ILO has been effectively implement Alliance 8.7 in Uganda. Promising progress has been observed in raising awareness and supporting victims by providing the finance assistance or technical assistance, but challenges due to resource constraints, socio-cultural factors, and the COVID-19 pandemic hinder full realization. The study contributes insights for policymakers and international organizations aiming to combat labour exploitation in Uganda and similar contexts. Continued research and efforts are recommended to sustain positive outcomes and overcome challenges..
