Child Trafficking & Child Labour

KOROGHO, IVORY COAST - FEBRUARY 2008: 11 trafficked children were arrested by the police at the border between Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast. They were going to be exploited in cocoa plantations in the south of Ivory Coast. In 2007, in the Soubre province of the country, 269 child victims of slavery were intercepted and rescued. Hundreds of children are coming from poorer neighbouring countries like Mali, Guinea, and Burkina Faso. The children are sent by their parents, too poor to feed them, to learn the Holy Koran. But instead, the Koranic masters send them to beg all the day. If they do not come back with enough money, they are beaten up and are not allowed to eat. These trafficked children are called 'talibes'. (Photo by Veronique de Viguerie/Getty Images)
