    6. 6. Too familiar…<br />Yacouba’s story is not the only one of its kind.<br />Stories like this are only too common throughout the cocoa industry.<br />Jane 6<br />
    7. 7. Who makes the money?<br />Non fair-trade companies (such as Galaxy, Mars and Nestle) have thousands of consumers, they must have thousands of workers.<br />But if the cocoa farmers don’t get the money from a chocolate bar, then who does?<br />Steph7<br />

    14. 14. Right to health<br />My family has money to pay for a doctor now in case any of us gets sick. That is thanks to people buying fair trade chocolate.<br />Right to education<br />We can go to school because my family gets enough money from fair trade.<br /> <br />CJ 14<br />
    15. 15. Right to freedom from child labour and slavery<br />I am lucky that I can stay with my family. My family works in Fair Trade and earns enough money.

    16. 16. Right to water, food<br />I don’t have to walk so far for fresh water now because we have a water pump in our village. Fair Trade helped to pay for it. <br />Iain 16<br />
