Published by Evelyn Russell Modified over 3 years ago. The African air was hot and dry The African sun was bright. The African air was hot and dry. And Chaga shuffled slowly along the dusty West African road. Chaga wished he was that man and not a poor boy with poor parents and six poor brothers and sisters. And two poor dusty feet. The man stopped and asked Chaga if he would like to earn enough money to buy a bicycle and help his family. The man took Chaga on the back of the bike to see his parents.
Tears of sorrow, because they would miss their son. And tears of joy, because this job was far more than they could ever hope to give him, scratching out a living on their tiny farm.
A chocolate factory ‘A cocoa plantation. The next day Chaga and many other excited boys travelled a long way in a truck. The truck factroy all through the night, and most of the next day, too. The world looked very different.
Chaga had never been to this part of Mali before. And when he said so, one of the older boys, laughed. We are going to the Ivory Coast. It was a small, crowded, smelly shack. Some boys were already there, huddled in corners and squeezed together on straw mats. Chaga turned to the door. But as he turned, the door slammed shut, and the lock clicked cold and hard behind him. He had been there four years and told Chagra that they had to carry bags of cocoa beans around the plantation.
They only got a small amount of corn paste to eat. Bokhari chcolate very thin. There were no beds or toilet in the shack. Those who became sick or died would be replaced by more children like Chagra.

Bokhari explained that they were locked in at night and had armed guards by day to stop them from escaping. They were also a long, long way from home in a foreign country. Heavy bags of cocoa beans, some bigger then the boys themselves, were loaded onto their backs, and they carried the bags all day, twelve hours a day, until they wanted to drop.
Some of the boys did drop, spilling their beans onto the ground. And Chaga watched in horror as the farmer beat those boys with sticks, then loaded the sacks again onto their bleeding backs. And after a while, Chaga believed that he would never see his family again.

And then, one morning, when it was time to leave the shack, Bokhari did not move. But when he took hold of his hand, it was cold. And before he could think, Chaga was running, too. It was a chance, a desperate chance, but his only chance. Some of the boys were caught and Chagra imagined the beatings they would get.
He thought of his home and his family and his poor friend. But the man in the truck was a policeman. You must help them, please! The policeman took Chaga to a place that was safe.
He factoey given good food to eat and clean clothes to wear. And because of the things he told the police, the cocoa farmer was arrested and the rest of the slave boys were set free.
In cocoa farms all over the Ivory Cjocolate, there are as many as 15, children just like Chaga who still work as slaves. The big chocolate companies have known about this for years and six years ago, agreed to do something to stop it. What can we do about it? This not only means that slaves have not been used to produce the chocolate but that a fair price is paid to the farmers to help them have enough food, clean water, health care, and schools.
