Despite the lucrative chocolate industry committing to end child labor in cacao plantations almost two decades ago, the practice still exists. The Ivory Coast, the world’s top cacao producer, has put in efforts to eradicate it, building schools, training farmers, and running TV campaigns on the illegality of child labor. Yet, in isolated areas of the forest, child slaves are still forced to work in the plantations.
Separated from their parents and sometimes re-sold to other traffickers, these young kids have no voice, no freedom, and no hope. In his documentary, Moreira exposes the reality of the situation and invites us all to question our choices. Why do we continue to support an industry that thrives on the exploitation of innocent children? Join Moreira as he delves deeper into the heartbreaking world of child labor in the cocoa industry.
