Our “Each Child a World Program for 2021”, which we have implemented in order to prevent child labor in hazelnut farming, started with the information meeting we held for our teachers and project employees.
We visited the mobile seasonal agricultural workers and children in the İkizce METİP area. Following the trainings we provided with Agricultural Intermediary Necmi KADAKÇI in this area where nearly 1000 workers are accommodated in the district, hygiene packages were distributed to each family and education packages to school age children.
Children who came to our district due to seasonal agricultural migration were given trainings on hygiene education and children's rights in accommodation areas. Within the scope of our project, each child received a training set consisting of a notebook, book, pencil, crayons, crayon, pencil sharpener, eraser, pencil holder and a cloth bag.
Migrant seasonal agricultural workers families and their children were given trainings on hygiene training, worker rights and child labor in accommodation areas. Within the scope of our project, a hygiene package containing masks, gloves, thermometers, cologne, soap, glasses, hats, training and their subjects was distributed to each family.
Our Project Academic Advisor Tuğba KONTAŞ AZAKLI and Serdar MACİT addressed our child labor liaison and traceability field officers and representatives of non-governmental organizations; How is the hazelnut harvest done during the COVID-19 process? How can we protect seasonal agricultural workers and their children from the coronavirus epidemic? An information meeting was held.
