Gabriel Adjei: How rice farming improved my family’s quality of life
Gabriel was identified as a farmer in need of support by the Nestlé Cocoa Plan’s Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation System (CLMRS), implemented with the International Cocoa Initiative (ICI). CLMRS are embedded into company supply chains to identify, monitor, prevent and address child labour cases. Gabriel was engaging his children in child labour because of his inability to hire adult labourers. In 2018, Gabriel, together with others in his community, received rice seeds, agrochemicals, and spraying machines to help them expand their already existing rice farms.
