SVI is proud to release a “toolkit” for stakeholders in the fight against child labor in the Malagasy vanilla sector. The toolkit is a compilation of materials designed for and used through the SAVABE Project, a collaborative project with the International Labor Organization (ILO). As the project has ended, SVI presents this toolkit to support other sector stakeholders – such as exporters, curers, collectors and farmers – to continue the fight against child labor, while member companies continue to scale supply chain projects to improve awareness building and remediation where necessary.
The toolkit (found here) provides all the necessary materials for stakeholders in the vanilla sector to:
- raise awareness of partners along the value chain and local communities on the issue of child labor;
- train exporter’s on how to sensitize their suppliers (including collectors and particularly producers) on the issues, and;
- understand the child labor legal framework.
SVI encourages use of any and all materials by any other actors who may find these tools helpful in their fight against child labor.
