In 2016, ICI and Côte d’Ivoire’s National Surveillance Committee launched the Eliminating Child Labor in Cocoa (ECLIC) project with funding from the Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB), a department of the United States Department of Labor.
With the financial assistance of the ILAB, the ECLIC project enabled 50 cocoa-farming communities to develop Community Action Plans. In turn this helped to safeguard 5,450 vulnerable children from hazardous labour.
