Surround yourself with the monumental portraits of the children who harvest the cocoa for the chocolate you like. Let them tell their story while watching them in the eyes. Discover how we are tempted by advertising for a product with a bitter taste: child labor in West Africa is still increasing. 

Bitter Chocolate Stories is an exhibition that stimulates all senses. Do not just fly over the cocoa plantations in West Africa but also touch real cocoa beans. Faced with the hard reality of the children working on the plantations. And watch the dreams they have portrayed in their drawings. 

Visit this exhibition and discover what you can do to stop child labor.
