 WELL Africa www.well-africa.org

In 2012, Sery Kone started WELL Africa, an organization that fights child slavery on cacoa plantations in West Africa. When Kone was four years old, his parents divorced, and his dad took him from his mom and abandoned him in a village 1,200 miles away. He found himself working on an Ivory Coast cacao farm as a child slave, laboring 10 hours a day just to get enough food to survive. After six years working on the cacao farm Sery escaped and sought out his mother only to find that she had passed away. The injustice of his lost childhood drove Sery to make a promise to himself that he would return to the cacao farms one day to save children from this terrible fate. WELL Africa's mission is to child slavery through education.
