Working Against Child Labour in Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is one of the least developed countries in Central Asia. Poverty is widespread and there is constant migration in search of work, primarily in agriculture.

Now, communities are learning more about the costs of child labour and taking steps to ensure their children have a brighter future.
