Abstract: The purpose of the study was to investigate the correlation between the child labour and human rights protection in Hargeisa Somalia. The study was guided by four specific objectives and these included; to determine the gender of respondents in terms of, gender, Age, Marital status, Education level, to examine the level of the child labour in Somalia, Hargeisa , to examine the nature of Human rights protection, to establish the rationale between child labour and human rights protection in the selected Hargeisa population study. The study employed descriptive survey design in particular, a descriptive co-relational design which was used to determine the relationship the two variables and in-depth interviews and questionnaires were used to collect data. On the level of Child labour; this study concludes that the Child labour in Somalia is not effectively managed. This is due to weak policies still surround child labour management. On Human rights protection in Hargeisa Somalia, this study concludes that the level of Human rights protection in Somalia is still low and weak. This is because Most children have not attended school in Hargeisa Somalia is still high; Currently a child labor in Somalia , Hargeisa have no protection of human rights from government; Children's in labor have been tortured or subject to cruel, inhuman, or degrading punishment while they still are a child labour. Regarding the rationale between the level of Child labour and the level of Human rights protection in Hargeisa Somalia, this study concludes that there is a significant and positive relationship between the two study variables. Thus, when Child labour is well managed, Human rights protection in the area is likely to improve and if it is not well managed, the Human rights protection is likely to remain low. The study recommended that; devise a public awareness program, on general rights of children. This program must bring together various actors in a coordinated manner: government, local authorities, religious leaders, nongovernmental organizations and the media. Communication strategies should be developed for the different audiences. There is need to focus research attention on domestic workers, since that's where the girls are working more. Establish social protection groups against child labour and drugs.
