Child Laborers in Tema and Accra Metro Areas: Volume 1

What is poverty and how does it affect family life and children in particular? How should children from an early age be socialized to menial labor? This seven-year research seeks to understand how girls are socialized in a modern traditionalistic society that is bent on stripping them of normal childhood and destined for a life of back-breaking and dangerous manual street labor for a long stretch of time in order to put food on the family table without quality of life and education for a career.
