Education & Child Labour

Education & Child LaborCash transfer programs may have significant positive impacts on educational outcomes through increased enrollment and participation; increased total years of schooling; reduced likelihood of dropout; and timely and continuous progression through school. As a result, these programs may reduce the need for early entry into the labor force. Social protection measures such as cash transfers also reduce the need for families to rely on their children's labor to meet household needs, thereby increasing their access for educational opportunities.
