Research Interests

I have been part of the research on bonded and Child Labour. I am more interested to conduct a research on the Afghan refugees children who are engaged in trash picking in Karachi. It is roughly estimated more than 20000 children in Karachi are engaged in trash picking (Garabage collection) and half of them are Afghan refugees. More than half million Afghan refugees are living in Karachi and out of total 80% are registred as refugees while others are living illegal in the city of Karachi.
