Living wage for farm workers
Solidaridad provides training, advice and research for stakeholders in i.a. the cocoa sector. In this sector they support small holder farmers who own land, and SMEs who farm the land. To excecute everything that is needed to farm on the land of farmers, SMEs employ farm workers. However, those SMEs haven’t the business case yet to guarentee the farm workers living wage, which results in poverty for the farm workers. Therefore, Solidaridad is looking for innovative ideas how they can support the SMEs to guarantee living wages for the workers. For the challenge participants can use EMFED Farms as an example SME.
