Colombia Avanza

 

The Colombia Avanza project aims to improve the capacity of civil society to better understand and address child labor and promote acceptable conditions of work in Colombia’s coffee sector. 

By 2021, the program aims to improve the capacity of civil society to identify and document information on the nature/scope of child labor and/or forced labor, and violations of acceptable conditions of work in the coffee sector. Colombia Avanza is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor.​
