alternative livelihood to poor families, involvement and retention of children in schools,

Sensitization of the community and informal sector, strengthening laws on child labour;

ensure national labour identification to all employers in the country. Strict laws, the education

system should be expanded to include human rights and child rights curricular. The

government should engage more in policy development, law reform and planning/budget

discussion at all levels to help reduce on the rate of children working, educate the population

on the dangers of child labour. The study concluded that child labour is the modern day

slavery and it targets children who have lost their parents and relatives, those out of school, those hardest hit by poverty and those that mainly live in abusive family environments.
