As one of the major components of the DOLE Child Labor Prevention and Elimination Program (CLPEP), the DOLE Kabuhayan Para sa Magulang ng Mga Batang Manggagawa (KASAMA) Program aims to contribute to the goal of the Philippine Labor and Employment Plan (LEP) of strengthening measures to reduce exploitative child labor by providing families of child laborers with access to livelihood and entrepreneurship opportunities. This study of the KASAMA Program seeks to assess and evaluate the impact of the program on the lives of its former beneficiaries. Specifically, it seeks to find out whether the program has been successful in ensuring that the family-beneficiaries are able to remove or disengage their children/relatives from hazardous or exploitative labor.
