Easter time

Widely debated following international outcry

Most Easter eggs involve child labour

Church skips Easter eggs

Major chocolate companies aren't doing enough to stop their product chain involving child labour

We need to send a clear message that we will not support child slavery


Dark Side of Chocolate
Solutions:
Target the chocolate Manufacturers

Raise the price cocoa farmers get for their productions

Government involvement
The Base Article
The Cause
What can WE do?
Web page: Anti-slavery

Persuade companies to spare some of their income to support the cause

Avoid products suspected of having slavery

Pressure the companies
Cocoa farmers receive too low amounts of money to be able to afford labour

Extreme poverty in the country led children to work for almost anything to survive
Doing something is better than doing nothing.
