Stop child labour in mica mines

Terre des Hommes India kinderarbeid mica

Are you aware of the misery behind electronic products, cars and shiny cosmetic products?

Risk of mine collapse, fatal lung diseases, working in the sweltering sun. This is the daily reality for at least 22.000 children who work in India’s mica mines. They don’t go to school but work long days in extremely dangerous mines.

Mica is a wonder mineral. It is shiny, it insulates against electricity and is heat resistant. The substance that gives car paint and cosmetic products their nice shiny, pearly effect and is used in many electronic products and cars.

This child labour must stop immediately. Learn how Terre des Hommes is fighting this serious form of child abuse.
