Why?

The Domestic Child Labour (DCL) refers to situations where children perform domestic tasks, not in their own home but in the home of a third party or ‘employer’ under exploitative circumstances.

In Pakistan, Child labour has become a serious human rights and policy issue. Child domestic labour is emerging as a more prevalent form of child labor and is insidious due to its invisibility.  Children continue to be a source of cheap labour for families, especially elite class across the country. A country where over 30% population living below poverty line and a poor public sector education system, the DCL is bound to increase unless immediate steps are taken to curtail the problem. It is falling under the specific conditions described in ILO Convention No.182 is considered within the Worst Forms of Child Labour (WFCL).

The YACP aims to tackle this menance by not only advocacting for Child rights, but with leading advocates and lawayers is focusing to prevent Domestic Child labour in Pakistan. Though, as a small organization, we have not succesful to prevent it, yet our team conducted baseline to collect data of DCL, and in next phase, aims to build a online tool “SOC (Save Our Child” App” connecting labors and families to legal assistance services and local police stations to provide imediate support in case of any issue.
