The overall objective of this toolkit is to improve conditions for working children by increasing awareness and understanding of child labour issues in Egypt...[It] is aimed at companies, large and small, in the agricultural sector with specific reference to the agricultural sector in Egypt...[and] provides companies in the agricultural sector with practical and achievable guidance on how to: provide the best possible work conditions for children, treat children in ways that respect and support their rights, [and] identify and address child labour...An estimated 70% [of child labourers in Egypt]...are found in the agricultural sector.
