The Brighter Futures Project Final Report: Executive Summary

Find Another Resource

World Education's Brighter Futures Program (BFP) was an eight year initiative supported by the U.S. Department of Labor whose aim was to reduce the number of children engaged in exploitative child labor in Nepal. The project has been extraordinarily successful, providing educational and other support to more than 43,000 children working in the worst forms of child labor in Nepal and to 72,140 children identified as particularly at-risk. Nepal is now witnessing major changes as more children enter into formal, nonformal, and vocational education programs in lieu of child labor industries. This report summarizes BFP's work with children in the different labor industries, and serves as an introduction to the series of thematic strategies reports and status reports that comprise the final report of the project.
