Child labor in tobacco and sugar in Zimbabwe

Sunday, October 04, 2020

October 3, 2020. The US ambassador to Zimbabwe, His Excellency Brian Nichols, urged the government to eliminate child labor in tobacco and sugar cane farming. 

According to the Society's research, a large portion of the tobacco production and sugar production is exported to the USA and the European Union.  However, according to our investigations, the amount produced by child labor is quite small.

Our task is to convince importers in the USA, the UK and the European Union to purchase only from reputable sources where they can properly monitor the supply chain.
