Forms, Prevalence and Drivers of Children’s Work and Children’s Harmful Work in Shallot Production on the Keta Peninsula, South-Eastern Ghana

Published on 6 November 2020

This paper synthesises the available literature on the forms, prevalence and drivers of children’s work, and evidence of harm associated with children’s work in shallot production on the Keta Peninsula, Ghana.

What emerges is that children have historically played, and continue to play, a key role in this horticultural system and their work contribution is structured by both age and gender. Desires to support parents and earn income drive children’s involvement, and children’s work has potential negative effects on their education.
