However the core objective of this study research aimed at examining whether child labour is a threat to the future skilled manpower in Uganda. Using a quantitative design, the magnitude and other dynamics of child labour, from the parent, employers and childrens perspective were analyzed. This was triangulated with other methods to gain an in depth descriptive account of the experiences of the child workers, prevalence of practices constituting child labour and perspectives of employers both employing children and those that do not. Study findings revealed that the phenomenon of child labuor is considerably big and requires urgent action. Children were the most preferred category of workers because they are easily influenced and manipulated at the age ranging from 5-15 years of age. The study revealed that the level of awareness on the problem of child labour and its implication on the future skilled man power was minimal among the children. Parents and some stakeholders. The finding showed that children work to earn wages, assist in family enterprise, help in family chores while others were not interested in school.
