FIGHTING SLAVERY TODAY


The Society's Current Campaigns

The Society's current campaigns vary from month to month.  Below are some of our current campaigns.


Buying chocolate Easter eggs?
Cocoa is the essential ingredient for making chocolate Easter eggs.  A significant proportion of the world production of cocoa is grown and harvested by African slaves on cocoa plantations in remote rural areas in West Africa.  Some of the chocolate Easter eggs which we buy is made using slave cocoa.  Learn how you can help end this form of slavery. 

 


Buying a carpet?
Child slaves produce handwoven carpets and rugs in India, Pakistan and Nepal.  Learn how you can bring this form of slavery to an end.


Buying a diamond ring?
Children are involved in mining for diamonds in mines near Koidu Town, the capital of the Kono district in Sierra Leone.  Other children (some as young as 6) in India are involved in cutting or polishing diamonds which are used in cheaper engagement rings.  If you are buying a diamond ring for your loved one, insist on diamonds which are not from Sierra Leone or cut or polished in India.  Some jewelers are dishonest.  Ask them how they know where the diamond is from.
