Nepal Situation of Child Porters: A Rapid Assessment
PDF File Size: 709 KB | Download   
The exploitative practice of child labour has come to be recognised as a major socioeconomic problem. Child labour jeopardises children's potential to become productive adults, robbing them of their health, their education and their prospects for a better future. It is an affront to the principles of social justice, child rights and to the protection of human rights. Children are among the most neglected, abused and exploited segments of the population, exposed to such worst forms of labour as serving as child porters. In Nepal, child work in general –and child labour in particular –is a common phenomenon. An estimated 42 per cent of the total population of children from five to 14 years old are economically active (Suwal et al., 1997).
