- Working children chances for going to school are less than other children, and if they attend school, it is mostly basic education;
- Working children are more likely to have less educated parents;
- Strong relationship between working children and being poor;
- If you are a working child, you are more likely to feel exhausted, tired and be exposed to more health risks and injuries.
The assessment was also based on focus group discussions with labor inspectors and Syrian families. It includes an analysis of causes and effects of child labour.
