There’s not that much I knew about child slavery in Africa. I knew that who every bought the children didn’t give that much money for them. Also that the kids would only have one meal a day. Child Slavery is wrong and Africa is one of the biggest places this happens.
There are 452,000 people today in Africa that are slaves. 200,000 of those people are children. Some of these children are bought for as low as $5 The most the children are sold for is $30 . 13 percent of the children went willingly. The parents of these kids think the children will have a better life but that is not the case.
Children every day are being trafficked and its hard to get around it. The main Countries that are trafficking children are Benin, Burkina, Faso, Cameroon, Gabon, Ghana, Ivory, and Nigeria. Some slaves are trafficked for ritual purposes and end up dead. Even in relatively peaceful areas the trafficking is growing.
Child slaves work from dawn to dusk. They can work form 10 to 20 hours a day with only one meal a day. Over 40 percent of the coco beans are made by child slavers. People say that if you have a cup of coco you are drinking a child slaves blood.
In Conclusion child slavery in Africa is growing and hard to stop. Parents give there child thinking that they will have a better life. That is wrong and it is wrong for these children to be working longing then some adults in the world. I still have a question to what happens to the children if there parents don’t wont them. I guess I will have to wait and see. Maybe one day they slavery will stop.
