ILO-IPEC steps to eliminate the worst forms of child labour in Kosovo

Poverty, barriers to education (accessibility, affordability, quality, relevance) and tolerant attitudes to child labour push a high number of children to enter child labour as early as 10 years old. In addition, due to a temporary “value vacuum”, family and community values have broken down and consequently increased the vulnerability of children. The streets have become the main place for the socialization of many children due to lack of proper supervision and care.
