  1. Assessment of Vulnerable Youth Economic Integration Opportunities in Myanmar

    16 January 2020

    This study was commissioned by the ILO’s MyPEC project in Myanmar to support the implementation of the National Action Plan on Child Labour (the NAP) in Myanmar. Economic empowerment of youth is a key strategy towards elimination of child labour in Myanmar. First of all, the prospects of entering decent employment or self-employment is a core motivational factor for children and families to pursue the long-term goal of education over the short-term goal of increased income through child labour, especially where resources are scarce and pursuing the long-term goal may mean immediate term sacrifices. If the prospects of economic empowerment/decent work at the end of one’s education are slim, children are more likely to drop out of school early and enter into child labour.

  4. Rapid Assessment on Child Domestic Work in Myanmar

    25 October 2019

    The Rapid Assessment on Child Domestic Work (CDW) has been conducted to capture the dynamics of CDW in selected areas of Myanmar. The knowledge generated in the context of this RA will be used to increase the level of awareness and advocacy with the aim of transforming potential social attitudes of acceptance of child labour in domestic work and the potential beliefs that these situations represent a protective environment for children – especially for girls. On the other hand, a key objective of the RA is to provide concrete elements to take policy action to end child labour and to protect young workers, of legal working age, in domestic work.

  6. Gabay sa pagpapaunlad ng pamilyang Pilipino: Modyul ukol sa child labour

    26 September 2019

    Ang malawakang kahirapan, limitadong pagkamit ng edukasyon, at kakulangan sa pagpapatupad ng batas ay ilan sa mga dahilan ng pananatili ng problema ng pagkakaroon ng batang manggagawa sa mga rural na lugar. Ang pangmatagalang pagtanggal ng mga batang mangagagawa sa mga ito ay nangangailangan ng solusyon sa mismong ugat na pinanggagalingan ng problema at pagpapalaganap ng disenteng trabaho para sa mga may hustong gulang. Ang pagtutulungan ng mga institusyon at taong direktang nakikipag-ugnayan sa mga lugar na ito ay isang paraan upang masolusyunan ang problema.

  8. Child labour in mining and global supply chains

    23 September 2019

    Child labour in mining is most commonly found in artisanal and small-scale mines (ASM). Even if produced in small quantities at a mine site, cumulatively, the quantity of minerals coming from ASM is significant: ASM accounts for about 20 per cent of global gold supply, 80 per cent of global sapphire supply and 20 per cent of global diamond supply, 26 per cent of global tantalum production and 25 per cent of tin. It is also a major source of employment: some 40 million people work in ASM — a number that has doubled in recent years — as compared with 7 million in industrial mining.
