The work we have done on behaviour change and infrastructure improvements over the last 10 years have created a ripple effect throughout the community, especially around WASH, Child Protection and Nutrition, meaning that the communities are in a better place to cope with the current coronavirus pandemic thanks to the improved community structures, efficiently disseminating information and preventing circulation of false information on coronavirus. Looking ahead, we are pleased to be expanding the programme to engage with boys in the tea gardens. UNICEF will continue to work closely with the government to make sure that children’s voices are heard, and their needs are prioritised across the tea estates.
We support young people in our agricultural supply chains so that they can act on choices they make, are protected from violence and harassment, and have equal access to opportunities and better health. By doing so, we aim to contribute to a virtuous circle where the next generation is better equipped with the right tools to fight poverty and prevent diseases.
We would like to extend a special thanks to UNICEF, for all your hard work and determination over the past decade. Together we will continue to drive positive change in the tea industry.
