The psychological indicator ( unwillingness to life) indicated that the number of children who have this indicator are 37 out of 101 who are working in enclosed places such as ( workshops- welding- plumbing- mechanic- car washing place- blacksmith- buffets- restaurants and boarding houses ( Lukanda) while 25 out of 90 who are working in open places such as streets have the undesired to live.
The report pointed that eight cases who were monitored need a legal intervention while 80 cases were provided a psychological support in " We are listening to you service" in Seyaj. Ten children need medical tests and treatments .
Moreover, 154 cases who dropped out from education need a referral to the Rehabilitation center for children workers to return to school to rehabilitate them and their families to create a safe working environment for children.
Not to mention that the reason for the dropping out from school for the majority of children was the children's ignorance of their rights in general and their rights to education in particular also, the absence of guidance to go to school.
