Welcome to the career site of International Cocoa Initiative on Impactpool!
ICI is a Swiss-based foundation that unites the forces of the cocoa and chocolate industry, civil society, farming communities and national governments in cocoa-producing countries to ensure a better future for children and to advance the elimination of child labour.
Operating in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana since 2007, ICI works with its partners to ensure that cocoa-growing communities are more protective of children and their rights, that the cocoa supply chain manages the risk of child labour responsibly and that knowledge and information are spread in an open and transparent manner. ICI’s multi-stakeholder structure and governance give it independence, integrity and influence. We lead a collective journey towards cocoa sustainability, guided by the principles of shared responsibility, joint learning and aligned, coordinated action.
Since 2007, we have assisted over 600 cocoa-growing communities, benefitting 700,000 children. Currently, our Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation System covers 127 farmers’ groups and coops, targeting over 90,000 cocoa-farming households.
ICI’s vision is of thriving cocoa-growing communities where children’s rights are respected and protected, and where child labour has been eliminated.
