Chocolate .Vs. Child Labour



Image by FlamingText.com

Who would you rather stand up for? The children who are working so hard, but then at the same time are getting abused. Or for the chocolate that you eat? Do you know the ugliness side behind chocolate.


Do you know, who is collecting the cocoa nibs to help make all your favourite chocolates? For example: KitKat, Mars, Hershey’s, Moro Bar, Snickers etc, because if you didn’t know about this then you can learn more about it.


Children mainly boys at the age of 12-16yrs are being forced and enslaved, to work in cocoa farms in order to collect the beans. These boys are mostly found from Mali, West Africa, Ivory Coast, Ghana etc.


Why did this become such a big issue? Well it became a big issue, because the chocolate manufacturers  ignored that they were forcing children to do and make chocolate. So they told the world incorrect facts, because they are more concerned about the profit and economic gaining.


I think this should stop because Child Labour is not good. People can help with chocolate brands changing their ingredients and not to include cocoa nibs. These Children need a voice and I am their voice.
