Abstract: This study analyses the impact of the conditional cash transfer programme by Bolsa Família on child labour, and was evaluated based on data from household surveys conducted in 2015. Enrolment of children, school attendance, vaccinations, and taking the kids off work are conditionalities of the programme. One aspect of the programme's functioning takes into account that school attendance does not prevent child labour, as beneficiary families are lowincome, schools are not full-time, and the value of the benefit is low. The first chapter presents the problem of child labour in Brazil, providing data, and demonstrating how, over the last decades, state and society in Brazil have adopted strategies to eradicate child labour successfully. The next chapter provides information on cash transfer programmes, the difference between conditional and unconditional cash programmes, and a review of past literature on the advantages and disadvantages of the two models.
