Facts

  • Cote d’Ivoire is a country in the west of Africa which produces more than 40% of the world’s cocoa crop.

  • In 2001 reports confirmed widespread child labour on cocoa farms Cote d’Ivoire and hundreds of children being trafficked from nearby Mali. The conditions these children were working in were characterised as dangerous and they were forced to work long hours.

  • Industry said they would guarantee the end of trafficked labour in the cocoa industry by 2005. They have failed to do this. They say they will cover half the farms in Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire by 2008, but even this will not make sure all farms are free from using trafficked children.

    They say it’s too difficult.

Slide9 l.jpg

On the very first day, he [farmer] took our luggage and locked it away. He ordered us to move heavy sacks of cocoa. They were so heavy I could barely lift it. [One boy] could not lift his sacks. The owner took a branch off a tree and started whipping him. He beat him until all his body was covered in cuts and blood. At that moment, I know he would beat us, too...(Sylla, 15 year old boy) We have never tasted chocolate... our bosses [farmers] never tasted chocolate...we work hard to pick the [cocoa] beans in the hot suns for 12 hours...no breaks...if we sit...we are dead... :Save The Children report 2005
