Children and unofficial workers mine cobalt for smartphones in slave conditions. Corporates know about this. It is well documented and yet it still happens. Corporates and consumers must take responsibility. At this moment, children and workers are suffering. If you have a smartphone, the cobalt inside it may have been mined by a child or an unofficial miner. Meanwhile, corporates get richer...


Every day, young children are being abused and exploited in the artisanal mines in DR Congo. The hours are long and they are often threatened with violence, all for as little as 8p a day. The corporates who profit from these children should help them, but so far, they don't. That's why we need you.

Kimbilio, the children's sanctuary run by registered charity, Congo Children Trust, is located in Katanga province, close to these mines. Kimbilio gives support to children, transforming their lives from exploitation to a hope-filled future.

Every penny makes a difference.
Thank you so much.

The Congo Children Trust is the UK registered charity (number 1121048)
which runs the Kimbilio Project, home to Richard and Dorsen, former child cobalt miners
