This article is matters for me because it is not just a matter of poverty but also the growth of child labors in Africa."The children of West Africa are surrounded by intense poverty and most begin working at a young age to help support their family. Some children end up on the cocoa farms because they need work and they are told the pay is good. Other children are “sold” by their own relatives to traffickers or to the farm owners, and it has also been documented that traffickers often abduct the young boys from small." Do you want this to continue whilst your children or even yourself indulge in their sweat and blood?
