Children Serving Children outlines the key findings and implications for policy and practice from Jonathan Blagbrough's doctoral thesis and explores relations between child domestic workers and the children of employing families in Mwanza, Tanzania.  September 2020

Key findings explore:

  • the importance of engaging with employing families for positive outcomes;

  • understanding child domestic work as 'more than labour': gender, age and social obligation;

  • the importance of meaningful engagement with children and young people;

  • legal approaches require localisation and contextualisation;

  • evidence gaps and areas for future research.
