Child Labor in the cocoa bean business

The Ivory Coast, a small country in West Africa, borders the countries of Liberia, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, and Ghana. It is the world’s biggest producer of cocoa, the almond sized beans that are made into chocolate treats for children in America, Europe, and other parts of the world. In the Ivory Coast, over 200,000 children work full-time jobs, many processing the cocoa beans on large farms.
