Press release: Understanding Children's Work and Youth Employment Outcomes in Indonesia
From 20/06/2012 to 21/06/2012
The inter-agency report was launched in Jakarta on 20June 2012 by the Minister of Indonesian National Development and Planning Agency, Prof. Dr. Armida S. Alisjahbana, SE, MA. The launch followed the commemoration of the World Day against Child Labour, which provided a spotlight on the right of all children to be protected from child labour and from other violations of fundamental human rights. The report finds that as many as 2.3 million children aged 7 – 14 years old are engaged in employment in Indonesia; each being denied their fundamental rights to full education, physical safety, protection, leisure and recreation. Most working children do manage to participate in some amount of schooling; however, the amount of time they spend in classes is much less than for non-working children, undermining their learning potential and opportunities for the future. For children out of school, child labour is a major contributing factor, with two-thirds of children who are not enrolled in school being engaged in some form of work, mostly to support low family incomes.
