This Rapid Assessment examines child labour at automobile repair workshops in Pakistan, with a view to providing updated information on its magnitude, identifying factors that push children into this form of child labour and reviewing national efforts to address the phenomenon. Based on its findings, it offers recommendations for policy design, implementation and action by stakeholders to eliminate and prevent child labour in automobile repair workshops.
The assessment was commissioned by the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Asia Regional Child Labour (ARC) Project in Pakistan after a tripartite consultative process identified automobile workshops as one of eight priority sectors for action to eliminate child labour. The research, employing both qualitative and quantitative methods, was carried out in nine districts1 across Pakistan’s four provinces, engaging 241 children, 24 parents and 22 employers, alongside government officials and representatives of non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
