Yao's story is depressingly familiar among children trafficked or sent away from their families and kept out of school and working for no money.Image captionInternational chocolate companies say they are committed to ending child labourThe chocolate industry has sponsored some projects such as in the village of Campement Paul, near the city of San Pedro. In 2008 a small school was built, for which the villagers had to pay half of the $20,000 (£12,570) costs. It can accommodate about 150 children. But the villagers say that another 400 in the community still have no school to go to. One child who has benefited is Dera, now 15. When the school opened, his father took him off cocoa work so he could learn to read and write. "You get very tired when you work so much," he said, showing scars he still has from his machete injuries. "Every day I would wake at six o'clock and go straight to the cocoa farm."
The chocolate industry concedes that more needs to be done, but says that even since 2009 its programmes have helped hundreds of thousands of cocoa farming families and more than one million children.
