MIAFW: India addresses slavery and child labor in the cosmetic industry. Mica is one of the most commonly found ingredients in cosmetics. 60% of the world’s mica comes from India where children are forced to work in dangerous and illegal mines. In order to protect these children we are developing Safe Villages. Children in these villages will spend their days inside schools instead of inside mines. To start, we are setting up 5 Safe Villages. Once established, you will be able to locate each Safe Village on Google maps. Our goal is to shut down these illicit and illegal markets and bring freedom to children working in the cosmetic industry.
