  14. 14. NGOs can discover and publicize concrete cases of abusive child labour; NGOs are especially good at devising and implementing action programmes on behalf of children already in the labour market; they are close to the children concerned, they know their special needs, and they generally enjoy the trust of the local communities in which these children live and are therefore well placed to mobilize the human and material resources available at that level. But it is regrettable that the attitude of governments towards NGOs acting against child labour has remained suspicious in several countries.
  15. 15. The role of teachers has been little explored, First, they can influence the children themselves by integrating child labour issues into the curriculum — for instance, the dangers of specific types of employment or work, the alternatives to work, the rights afforded to working children under national laws and regulations and the means of defending them. Second, they can influence the community by informing families on the costs and dangers of child labour; by acting as child labour monitors to help survey the extent of school non-attendance and its relationship to child labour in the community; and by supporting community participation in planning formal and non-formal education programmes to ensure that all child workers and potential child workers are reached. Finally, through their professional associations they can press for educational reforms which make education both more accessible and more attractive to poor families and their children, including providing flexibility in school calendars to accommodate children who work.
  16. 16. <ul><li>minimum age required by the law to work and that at which it is permitted to leave the school system. In several cases, the minimum age for admission to work is lower than the school leaving age, giving children access to employment before they have completed the minimum number of years of compulsory schooling. national labour and education laws are consistent </li></ul>
