Project

Improve conditions for children at coffee farms

Introduction

The prevention of child labour is a multidimensional social problem that requires the participation of different actors. The dynamics of child labour in the coffee sector includes an intervention at the level of the communities of origin, as well as the workers destination farms. For this reason, we propose the development of an intervention in communities where there is a large concentration of coffee producing farms, in which the local population, as well as the migrant population, participate in the harvest of this crop.

The Project

The prevention of child labour in the coffee sector through awareness-raising and promotion of good practices for the protection of children in the communities of El Zarzal, Agua Caliente Norte, El Naranjo, Cataulacas and El Cocire in the municipality of San Juan in the department of Intibucá. Activities will be developed in the following three components:

  • Education
  • Awareness
  • Child Protection
