The Department of Labor and Employment in Region 9 (DOLE-9) will conduct a survey on child labor to determine what assistance the government can provide them.
Ofelia Domingo, DOLE regional director, said Friday the nationwide survey will commence in July and ends in December this year.
Domingo said the survey aims to target seven thousand child laborers in the region who could receive government assistance that includes free education.

She said the Child Labor Survey will be undertaken by community facilitators and encoders with the help of workers under the Government Internship Program (GIP). (PNA)
