BITTER Chocolate Stories

Stories from children about cocoa plantations in Ghana and the Ivory Coast

More than 2 million child labourers work on cocoa plantations in Ghana and the Ivory Coast, and tens of thousands of children are victims of trafficking and forced labour in cocoa production. Who are these children and why do they work there?

Please note: Visitors are required to reserve their tickets in advance and wear a mouth mask (13+)  

Six of them tell their story in BITTER Chocolate Stories: Valerie, Mohamed, Catherine, Bassirou, Sarata and Issaka. Because of these children, we - the chocolate consumers thousands of miles away - can eat the chocolate that we enjoy so much.

Co-operation

BITTER Chocolate Stories is a co-operation between photographer Joana Choumali, journalist Marijn Heemskerk, madame Bernadette Ouédraogo president of GRADE-FRB, Paradox and Tony’s Chocolonely.
