Child Labor

215 million children are working, and 115 million of these children are exposed to hazardous forms of child labor. Child labor in the cocoa industry has been called the "worst form of child labor". This labor is described as likely to harm the health, safety, or morals of children. It includes the use of hazardous tools and interferes with schooling. Child labor causes illiteracy and leads to a cycle of poverty.
