End-line Assessment related to the Prevention of Child Labour in Turkey.

In June the group of Lloyd Lipsett (Canada), Jean Pierre Chabote (Canada), Muge Tuna (Turkey), Alessandra Tassara (USA) and Kimberly Inksater (Canada) completed the end-line assessment of the pilot project “Partnership to Prevent Child and Forced Labor in Imported Agricultural Products: Piloting the USDA Guidelines in Turkey’s Hazelnut Supply Chain”. This initiative was funded by the United States Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs and was implemented by the Fair Labor Association in cooperation with Nestlé and its two main hazelnut suppliers in Turkey, Olam-Progıda and Balsu. The JGG team captured the state of the companies’ systems and programs, assessed changes and results from the pilot project and derived lessons learned that will support the future implementation of the USDA Guidelines.
