ILO IN COLLABORATION WITH UI : WORKSHOP ON THE ELIMINATION OF CHILD LABOUR


ACCELERATING ACTION FOR THE ELIMINATION OF CHILD LABOUR IN SUPPLY CHAIN IN AFRICA (SCCEL-AFRICA)

1. Introduction

The University of Ibadan is involved in a collaborative relationship with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to implement aspects of the project named: “Accelerating the Action for the Elimination of Child Labour Chain in Africa”. The areas covered in this collaboration include the adaption of the SCREAM (Supporting Children’s Rights through Education, the Arts and the Media) Modules to the child labour contexts in the cocoa and Artisanal Gold Mines (ASGM) supply chains located in Niger and Ondo States in Nigeria and the training of professionals and stakeholders in the implementation of the skills developed in the adapted modules.

Having agreed to the terms of the project, the University of Ibadan constituted a team led by its Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic), Professor Adebola Ekanola. The membership of the team consists of academics from disciplines that are considered central to the project. There is in addition, a co-opted member from the Bursary Unit on the request of the ILO. The programme itself is domiciled for certification in the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning of the university. Below is the entire University of Ibadan ACCEL Africa Project team:
