The incidence of child labour in Nepal is relatively high compared with other countries in South Asia. According to data from the MICS and other national surveys, Nepal has 34% of its children between the age of 5 and 14 who are involved in child labour, compared with 12% in the South Asia region as a whole. There are more female than male child labourers, and the situation is worse in rural than urban areas. According to the Nepal Labour Force Survey (NLFS), 88.7% of the working children are being employed in the agricultural sector.
Given the seriousness of the issue of child labour in Nepal, there are several Non-governmental Organizations that are based in Nepal to tackle the problem of child labour through improving educational standards.
