Company Profile

Established in 2002, ICI is a humanitarian foundation that promotes partnership among the chocolate and cocoa industry, cocoa-producing governments, civil society and NGOs to support the elimination of child labour in cocoa-growing communities. Our head office is in Geneva, Switzerland and we have operations in Ghana and Ivory Coast with National Offices in Accra and Abidjan.

ICI has developed a Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation System (CLMRS) that allows industry partners to manage responsibly the risk of child labour in their cocoa supply chain. In line with the Ghana Child Labor Monitoring System (GCLMS), the system is based on the presence of Community Facilitators (CF) within cocoa-growing communities who raise awareness on the issue of child labour; identify cases and implement remediation activities.

Job Description

Recruitment of a monitoring and evaluation specialist on child labour interventions to help the child labour unit


One of the most effective means of addressing child labour is to regularly check the place where girls and boys may be working. Child labour monitoring is an active process that ensures that appropriate and coordinated strategies are put in place to prevent and address child labour. It is a way of mainstreaming child labour prevention into all levels of government.

The idea of child labour monitoring system began in the 1990’s through the work of the International Program on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) of the ILO. Child labour monitoring and remediation systems (CLMRS) are one of a number of policy approaches currently being used to prevent and address child labour in Ghana. The Child Labour Unit needs an M&E Specialist to help in the coordination of all interventions in both government and private sector.
