CHILD LABOR

IN THE COCOA INDUSTRY

Child Labor Information

Over 20% of the world’s cocoa supply is produced in 2 African Nations: Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Unfortunately, due to the increase in the demand for cocoa, these nations have decided to use Child Labor and Slavery. Children as young as 5 years old are being denied the right to education and instead are being forced to work long hours on cacao plantations for little/no pay. ILO has stated that child labor in the cocoa industry is the “Worst form of Child Labor”, and has publically stated that it is their top priority to eliminate this.

Help make a change!

You have the right to go to school, have fun, and be safe. However, not everyone does, as demonstrated above. YOU can make a change by donating to non-profit organizations, raising awareness, and influencing people in positions of power to help save these children.
