El trabajo infantil perpetúa el ciclo de pobreza de los niños afectados, sus familias y comunidades, convirtiéndoles -probablemente- en la población rural pobre del futuro. Sus comentarios y contribuciones serán fundamentales para identificar y documentar buenas -y prometedoras- prácticas que podrían impulsar investigaciones adicionales -basadas en datos- y ser reproducidas en otros entornos.
