A Rapid Assessment of Children Working as Porters

Child Workers in Nepal [CWIN]

Child labour in general and its worst forms in particular are a global and a national problem. The study looked at a number of things, including the prevalence of child labour in the sample districts; the emerging patterns of demand and supply; the socio-demographic and economic characteristics of child labourers; the push and pull factors of migration affecting children’s entry into the sector; the work histories, working conditions and hours of children; the relation between work and school and education; the nature and extent of the hazardous and unhealthy working conditions, children’s desire for rehabilitation and awareness about child rights; and possible programme interventions to improve existing conditions.
