PSHE KS3 & KS4/GCSE: Child labour on cocoa plantations in Ghana (pt 3/3)

Presenter Hazel Lindsey, travels from the UK to Ghana in West Africa to investigate the child labourers at the bottom of the supply chain for the world’s favourite treat - chocolate.

In the capital Accra, Hazel interviews Bright Appiah, director of Child Rights International, an organisation which campaigns against child labour.

Back in the UK, she speaks to Nick Weatherill from the International Cocoa Initiative, an organisation which represents chocolate manufacturers, governments and other organisations.
