Study finds hidden child slavery in Bangladeshi homes


On 06/04/2016, the results of a survey co-funded by Terres des Hommes Netherlands were launched in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The study found that 87.7% of child domestic labourers in Bangladesh are girls who often face physical, mental and sexual abuse and exploitations while working 15.9 hours on average per day for Taka 1266.7 (16.15$/14.20€) per month. Child domestic labour is susceptible to becoming a worst form of child labour with some children only 5 or 6 years old under total control of their employers.
