United against child labour

Child labour is one of the critical social issues that Advanta Seeds, along with its parent company UPL address actively. To fight child labour, we started the “United Against Child Labour” (UACL) initiative. The objective is to end all forms of child Labour in the seed supply chain and to ensure education for children.

To target the issue at its roots, we developed an awareness program for the rural communities, and engaged local governments, schools, and media to advocate the cause.
