This report sets out to gain an overview of existing knowledge of child labour practices in the Malawi tea sector and to explore the needs and priorities for further research. The findings of the paper include:
* There is clear evidence that child labour does exist in the tea sector in Malawi, contrary to the opinion of the Tea Association of Malawi and the most dominant tea sector owner in Malawi.
* The problem of child labour should not be isolated from other general problems facing workers in the tea industry, namely, the very poor working conditions.
