The electronics industry
You have gold in your hands.
Literally, because there is gold in your mobile phone, tablet and laptop. Gold that has possibly been acquired using child labour.

More than 1 million children are working in and around goldmines all over the world. The electronics sector, which is the third largest buyer of gold in the world, consists of powerful companies that can truly make a difference. But electronic companies are not yet making a serious effort to eradicate child labour from gold mining.

You have gold in your hands.
Figuratively as well. Because thanks to your mobile phone, tablet or laptop you can now contribute to the solution. Stop Child Labour is asking the electronics industry to work towards child-labour-free gold.

Together we can stop child labour.
