    Child labourers in Lebanon: The power of play

    11 July 2016

    The incidence of child labour in agriculture is on the rise in Lebanon, especially in the Beqaa Valley region which is host to a large number of Syrian refugees. The ILO held a funfair in the area to raise awareness amongst refugees and locals of the risks and hazards of child labour in agriculture. It included plays written and performed by child labourers and their parents, highlighting aspects of their plight and helping them relieve some of the distress they feel due to their situation. The ILO organized the event with funding from the Denmark-led Regional Protection and Development Programme, and in cooperation with Lebanon’s Ministry of Labour and the NGO Beyond Association.
