Cocoa harvesting is backbreaking and hazardous work, they have to:
- Reach into cocoa trees
- Using dangerous machetes
- Cut down the pods and crack them open
- Extract cocoa beans


Most of this is done by children...
- 300 000 children work in cocoa production in the Ivory Coast, the worlds first cocoa producer.

- The children are between the ages of 12-16, but children as young as 7 works on these farms.
- Their freedom is taken away and they are forced to work 80-100 hours a week (11-14 hours a day).

- The International Cocoa Initiative estimates that there are at least 1 million more child slaves in the cocoa industry (25000 times of the current students in this room).
