In Nigeria, ACCEL Africa will focus is on the Gold and Cocoa supply chain and will concentrate its efforts on improving the legal, policy and institutional frameworks.

The project will support the capacity of members in employers’ and workers’ organizations, in enterprises, and in public bodies charged with fulfilling the legal and practical obligations of member States; and of workers’ and small producers’ organizations in the rural and informal economies so that they are better able to claim their rights to work free of child labour.
