Successful Strategies and Experiences in Combating Child Bonded Labour in Nepal
PDF File Size: 1.89 MB | Download   
Nepal ratified the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Convention No. 182 in 2004, committing to “take immediate and effective measures to prohibit and eliminate all the worst forms of child labour”. To assist Nepal in eliminating bonded labour, the ILO, with funding from the United States Department of Labor, initiated the Sustainable Elimination of Child Bonded Labour (SECBL) project in December 2001.

Child bonded labour has been a socio-economic phenomenon in South Asian countries for centuries. Only recently have these countries moved to confront the problem, in different ways and with mixed results. Comparatively, Nepal’s response has been the most recent; a cabinet decree abolished bonded labour in July 2000, followed by a law enforcing it in 2001 (the Kamaiya Labour Prohibition and Regulation Act, which was passed by the parliament by an overwhelming majority of support for it). It outlawed all forms of bonded labour, but principally the Kamaiya system, primarily found in the western Terai districts and the Haruwa and Charuwa systems in the eastern Terai districts.
