town council, Luwero District .This study was based on three objectives, i.e. to find

the causes of child labor in Bombo town council, to identify effects of child labour

on academic performance and solutions

The study employed a cross sectional survey with 196 respondents selected by

simple random sampling. The schools and respondents were randomly selected.

cleared and entered EPI-DATA and reported to SPSS for analysis.

About 52.3% of the respondents were female and 47.4% being male. Most

respondents were below the age of 19 and majority were in 0 level

means of fighting child labour in our community. The government should therefore

enforce laws on human right to combat this evil.
