Project Cultivar was a U.S. Department of Labor-funded project designed to increase labor law compliance and competitiveness in agricultural sectors of Central America and the Dominican Republic. Implemented through partnerships with local human rights NGOs led by SAI, Project Cultivar delivered training to 3,715 workers, 240 managers, 126 worker peer trainers, and 315 labor inspectors. This capacity building provided the infrastructure for ongoing social dialogue by increasing awareness of national labor laws, empowering workers to invoke their rights, strengthening managers’ capacity to comply with labor legislation, and equipping government inspectors with the tools to enforce regulations. It provided proof of concept of the multi-stakeholder, consultative, and capacity-building model of SAI.
