Entry Description: Recently, the Government of Bolivia has intervened with the 548 law about "ninos y ninas y adolescentes Trabajadores" in order to protect and regulate in some way these situations. Approved in July 2014, the rule seeks to balance the constraints stemming from international conventions relating to child labor and the need for subsistence inherited from the country's poverty. This law sets the minimum age of child laborers in 14 years (request 12) and defines what are the prohibited activities for teens
