    Development of an instrument for the psychosocial assessment of child workers

    14 April 2015

    Why do psychosocial factors not get the attention they deserve? In part, it may be the lack of a method able to quantify or to demonstrate psychosocial impacts on a population-wide basis. Many assume they can only be assessed (a) by a professional psychologist and (b) on a one-to-one basis, and are leary of getting into situations in which they do not feel competent and for which they may not have the time or resources to handle. This paper reports on an effort to find a way around this block. It describes the process of developing a tool capable of examining the key dimensions of child workers’ well-being but that is practical for use in settings where child labour commonly occurs.

    Breaking the mould - Occupational safety hazards faced by children working in brick kilns in Afghanistan

    13 April 2015

    This report seeks to provide useful information to assist the development of policy and of practical interventions to protect the safety, health and well-being of children above the minimum working age (14 in Afghanistan) in the brick kilns; to facilitate the removal from child labour of children below that age and access to free basic education for all children under the minimum age and for all children removed from worst forms of child labour. The study also assesses the financial impact of health problems on families, studying the amount of debt owed by families to medical service providers and the types of illness which cause such debt.
