In Mali, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, and Niger, where the average number of children per woman is 7, 6.2, 5.2, and 8, respectively, families find it hard to support so many children. Child trafficking often occurs because parents willingly hand over children to plantation owners for extra income, or children volunteer ?to seek their own fortune.? They are unaware of the working conditions, yet to many, knowledge about horrible labor conditions is no deterrent if there is the possibility of a better life. By showing the links between unplanned childbearing and poverty, "Cesiri Tono" addresses the root causes of child trafficking. The program's storylines show how smaller families increase the quality of life for everyone.
