Nepal Situation of Domestic Child Labourers in Kathmandu: A Rapid Assessment
PDF File Size: 1.01 MB | Download   
Hiring a live-in person to undertake domestic household chores is an integral part of South Asian tradition. The use of domestic child labourers (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 characterise 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.
