Cocoa Knowledge Partner for the Dutch Fund Against Child Labour


The Dutch Fund Against Child Labour (FBK) supports companies to identify and eradicate child labour in their supply chains by sharing best practices, organizing learning events, and advising and financing child labour projects.

Because of the strong interest shown by cocoa companies, FBK asked KIT Royal Tropical Institute to be its “eyes and ears” in the cocoa sector. Together, KIT and FBK organise knowledge sessions to encourage cocoa stakeholders to learn from each other, collaborate and work towards a shared understanding of the root causes of child labour. The sessions invite participants to learn from each other and think about how they can be more effective as a collective addressing child labour.
