Overview of Findings and Recommendations

Awareness Raising

 Raising awareness about child labour and the resulting harm amongst farmers, children and the wider community 

What we learn from the data

We analyse the types of tasks children report engaging in throughout the year. The data shows that different types of hazardous tasks follow different seasonal patterns.

What we recommend

Awareness-raising campaigns addressing specific hazardous tasks could be scheduled to coincide with their peak seasons, for example:

  • application of agro-chemicals (May–June)
  • land-clearing tasks (May–July)
  • use of sharp tools (July–September).

Adjusting the content of awareness-raising sessions on a seasonal basis could help to increase perceived relevance and prevent awareness-raising fatigue, thus enhancing effectiveness.
