Webinar: From Promise to Action: Addressing the Education Emergency and Child Labor Crisis in Pakistan

Published July 08, 2024

The constitutional guarantee of free and compulsory education for every child between the ages of 5 to 16 remains largely unfulfilled as 26.2 million remain OOS. On a similar note, child labor persists as a development and human rights issue and impedes access to education. The first and only national-level Child Labor Survey in Pakistan conducted in 1996 reported 3.3 million children trapped in child labor. Although, Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa conducted surveys to record child labor's status in 2020 and 2022 respectively; disparities in effective monitoring mechanisms hamper development of a clear picture.

On June 12, World Day Against Child Labor, PCE organized a webinar titled "From Promise to Action: Addressing the Education Emergency and Child Labor Crisis in Pakistan". This discussion brought together experts to explore the root causes, impacts, and actionable solutions to end child labor in Pakistan. The report below provides a comprehensive overview of key discussion points and actionable policy recommendations generated.
