ACCEL Africa 2nd Phase

Accelerating action for the elimination of child labour in supply chains in Africa (ACCEL AFRICA) - 2nd phase in brief

The ACCEL Africa Project is entering its second phase with a strong commitment to eradicating child labour in supply chains across Africa. It is continuing to target the root causes of child labour in specific countries and supply chains, particularly in agriculture, mining, and the rural economy.

The focus countries for intervention are Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, and Uganda, working in the cocoa, coffee, cotton, gold, and tea supply chains.

The ACCEL Africa Project aims to catalyze the eradication of child labour in Africa by fortifying existing systems that address root causes.

Building on the success of the 1st Phase, the 2nd Phase will expand its efforts across multiple countries and sectors, fostering an integrated approach to eliminate child labour at sub-national, national, and global levels.
