Nepal: Child Labour

Categories: South Asia, Nepal, Human Rights, Law, Youth

Kathmandu Speaks [1] on the vulnerability of children, as they are forced to work, or turn to addiction. “By ‘ketaharu’ or boys, the owner surely meant for minors and not others. I was shocked to see such an advertisement. It is illegal to hire minors, but the courage of this owner should be praised! For he dared to sought such boys so openly, and I think he had no fear or knowledge of any laws existing in the country which forbids child labour.”
