Abstract: The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of KURET project at SNNPR, Gurage Zone Ezea Woreda targeted primary schools. The study examines the working condition of beneficiary students before and after the intervention, the type and level of intervention under taken by the project, difference of academic achievements between beneficiary and non beneficiary students. Methodologically the descriptive case approach encompassing multiple techniques of sampling design is employed. The data were collected through questionnaires, interviews, focus group discussions and document analysis. The data drawn were transcribed and analyzed. Although the findings indicate that KURET project played a significant role in child labour alleviation, awareness creation and providing opportunities of education for the targeted children. On other hand, the project intervention is not comprehensive and multisectoral in its approach. Moreover, the livelihood support for children and for their families is not practical. Furthermore, the beneficiary students were not better than non beneficiary students in their school attendance, promotion and repetition rates and in their academic performance. Thus the project achievement seems partially effective. Therefore, this study suggests improvements on the type and level of interventions in to a comprehensive and multisectoral approach and the demanding nature of the link between lively hood support and intervention for long lasting effect. Furthermore the objective of the project should be practical at all levels to respond more effectively and efficiently for the need of children, their families and to sustainably reduce child labour in the study area.
