Rapid population growth and increased urbanization in Nepal have created a demand for brick workers. Many of these workers are migrant children whose families have moved from rural areas in search of work. This booklet presents an overview of the child labor situation in the brick industry, as well as strategies being implemented to address the situation. World Education's work through the Brighter Futures Program to address this aspect of child labor includes nonformal education, vocational education, parent teacher associations, and support to attend formal schools. Challenges and lessons learned in each of these areas are also presented. Part of a series that comprises the final report for the Brighter Futures Program funded by the U.S. Department of Labor.
