Children in the Carpet Industry in Nepal: Child Labour Status Report

While the legal removal of child labor from the production of carpets has been a major success story for Nepal, structured education programs and constant vigilance are needed to keep up this achievement. This report explores ways that World Education used educational programs including nonformal classes, vocational training, open learning centers, and livelihood developmentto help remove children from the carpet industry. The booklet also looks at ways that the program worked to support impoverished families and provide educational opportunities for girls. Information on successful approaches, lessons learned and major challenges faced are also covered in this document. Part of a series that comprises the final report funded by the U.S. Department of Labor.
