This study seeks to explore and examine, from the viewpoint of working children and adolescents, the actual or non-existent contribution of work to achieve the desired life plan, considering the different features of life that have an impact on the development of children. The study was focused on six communities in Bolivia and Nicaragua —both urban and rural— and involved, other than working children and adolescents, the experiences of the families, organisations, authorities, and employers—all of them key actors for their training and socializing, and also enablers for the future of working children and adolescents.
