The prevalence of unsafe work practices or exploitation among adults and children is recognised as a major problem in cocoa growing. ICI was created to support the prevention and elimination of these practices. We are working, in a collective effort and shared responsibility between industry and civil society, to better understand the problem and address its root causes at the community level. We are participating in the development and implementation of national and international policies to bring about a social change.
Our programs are recognised for their impact on child protection and child labor reduction, as well as for promoting local development processes.
ICI is actively seeking new partners to expand its activities in cocoa-growing communities and to advocate for better child protection mechanisms. Interested? Get involved!
