The next time you crunch into a Kit-Kat or Hersheys chocolate bar, or eat a birthday cake topped with chocolate frosting, consider this: a young, uneducated, unpaid, malnourished West African child has likely cut open the cacao fruits that held the cocoa seeds of the chocolate which you are now eating. This child is working in Ghana or the Ivory Coast (combined, the two countries provide 60% of global cocoa) and has been trafficked from Burkina Faso.
