Investigating the Worst Forms of Child Labour No. 3 - Nepal Situation of Domestic Child Labourers in Kathmandu: A Rapid Assessment
PDF File Size: 667 KB | Download   
This research report has been prepared to enhance the understanding of the plight of domestic child laborers in Kathmandu. Children and their employers cooperated during the field data collection, and we thank them all for answering our questions.Hiring a live-in person to undertake domestic household chores is an integral part of South Asian tradition. The use of domestic child laborers (DCL) is common in Nepal, especially in its affluent urban areas. In Kathmandu, according to the study’s findings, one in five households employs children. The consequences of domestic child labour on children, however, have prompted this study to investigate child domestic work as a worst form of child labour. This rapid assessment undertaken in Kathmandu aims to characteristic DCL and to understand the trends in their employment. It provides overall quantitative and qualitative information on the topic of domestic child labour to fill the many gaps in knowledge about this hidden form of work.The Government of Nepal has repeatedly stated its commitment to eliminating the worst forms of child labour. At the time of writing the present Rapid Assessment, the Ministry of Labour and Transport Management is well into the process of drafting a Master Plan of Action for the elimination of the worst forms of child labour by 2005 and all forms of child labour by 2010.
