Abstract: Through the efforts made by the research in trying to establish the causes of child labour, the research used questionnaire method to collect the data. The data was collected from different people distributed allover the division who were the respondents. The findings of the research were as follows: Children in Likoni division engage in child labour due to: o Ill health of the parents o Poverty • Ignorance of parents o Nature of employment In conclusion therefore since the findings of the study proved that child labour is there, the government should assist the children whose parents are ill so that they do not engage in working. Also the parents who are poor should be helped to start income generating activities to provide them with something to keep them going. The parents should be educated so as to know the importance of their children getting education as it is the key to a better life. The government should take action on those parents who leave their kids to go to work at a tender age. The children should be taken to school and forced to be there as this will help them.
