In June 2018, ICI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Ghana’s Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations (MELR). 

Under this MOU, we supported the launch and implementation of Phase Two of the National Plan of Action (NPA2) on the Worst Forms of Child Labour, which sets the policy framework to guide national child-labour elimination activities in Ghana. The overall objective of NPA2 is to reduce child labour to the barest minimum by 2021 while laying strong social, policy and institutional foundations for the elimination and prevention of all forms of child labour in the longer term. It also covers the review process for the Ghana Child Labour Monitoring System (GCLMS). We are also supporting the National Steering Committee on Child Labour (NSCCL) and its sub-committees in their efforts to coordinate child-labour interventions in Ghana.
