Nepal Bonded Labour Among Child Workers of the Kamaiya System: A Rapid Assessment
PDF File Size: 881 KB | Download   
The Kamaiya system is commonly known as an agriculturally based bonded labour system in Nepal. Bondage among Kamaiya children working for an employer ensues from the debt incurred by the parents and also through the linkage in exploitative employment practices affecting the parents. Poor Kamaiya households either pledge children as collateral for loans,or children are sent to work in land owners’ houses to secure Kamaiya contracts or to secure the rights to share crop. Children of the Kamaiya are faced with aspects of debt-bondage,bondage resulting from their parents employment, and bondage due to land leasing. The Kamaiyas are obliged to provide underpaid and even unpaid farm labour for excessively long hours,under compulsion of the annual Kamaiya contract. The system can tie families into bondage for generations.
