The educational legacy of child labour in Africa

Throughout a long history, children in Africa have been engaged in farm and household work, and this style was not only confined to Africa, but was practiced globally in places such as America, Europe, etc. In those societies, farming and housework were part of education and practical education, where children received their education and training from parents and grandparents and continued to practice the same craft over the generations.

Studies indicate that this work has had an important educational role, especially in rural areas, where children receive their practical and professional education by participating in the family business. This is considered more specifically in the context of Africa, where cultures between its regions differ significantly. In some societies, training is carried out through the system of genealogies and clans, where the little ones share with the big ones the daily chores, and the family and clan are a major source of learning life skills and passing them on to new generations.

In the past, there were no formal schools, education was carried out by daily work with the family and the community. As in many cultures, the use of children in work was considered a way to strengthen their sense of responsibility and as a way of life, especially in rural communities that depended on agriculture for food and livelihood.

By the example of the village “bahray” in northern Tanzania, it can be seen how children are involved in the work of Agriculture from an early age, the younger ones help take care of the crops, while the older ones carry feed for the animals, and so the responsibilities are distributed according to age.

In conclusion, the history of child labor in agriculture in Africa is part of the cultural educational heritage, since these practical experiences were an essential part of the process of transferring knowledge and skills from one generation to another.
