The overall objective of conducting rapid assessments of the worst forms of child labor in general and portering by children in particular was to identify the number of children under 18 years of age involved in the sector at the national and sub-regional levels as well as to assess the underlying socio-economic, cultural, and family-level factors driving children into portering within the context of local- and national-level labor and product market dynamics.
