This case study from Kabul Province is the first in a three-part series examining household decision-making around the use of child labour in urban and rural Afghanistan. This study identifies and explores the ways in which households’ evaluation of education and work trade-offs—and their direct and opportunity costs—influence decisions about child labour. The study also describes the types and conditions of work commonly performed by children, and attempts to assess the potential positive and negative effects of work on children’s access to education and their physical and psychosocial well-being.
