ARISE takes approximately 26 children out of work every day
In many parts of the world where tobacco is grown, there is a strong tradition of children working alongside adults on farms.
Child labor is a complex problem without a simple solution. We work with our tobacco growers and their communities to provide long-term, sustainable solutions. We improve access to education by providing transport, school materials and scholarships, and by educating farming communities on the benefits of education.
Our anti-child labor program is called ARISE. This program is being carried out in partnership with US-based organization Winrock International and the International Labor Organization (ILO).
