socio-economic characteristics. Moreover, the FATA region was recently affected by a
large scale conflict that resulted in large numbers of its inhabitants getting ki lled, as well
as destruction of public and private infrastructure and loss of livelihoods. This also
resulted in limiting access to the region. Keeping this in consideration asample size of h

multinomial logit regression technique. Results show that the FFE program significantly
reduced child labour incidence.
