End Widespread Child Labor on Palm Oil Plantations

Target: Kuok Khoon Hong, Chairman of Wilmar International

Goal: End use of child labor by the world’s largest palm oil manufacturer.

Children are suffering on some of the world’s largest palm oil plantations. Wilmar, the biggest palm oil processor in the world, uses child labor on its plantations in Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore. Over 10,000 children live in squalor and work in harsh conditions on these plantations.

Wilmar has the resources to protect the children living and working on its plantations. It also has the resources to protect the parents, whose poor economic conditions leave them with no choice but to recruit the labor of their young children.

Sign the petition and demand that Wilmar protect the families living and working on its plantations. Demand that the company provide education for children, give adequate pay for parents, and eliminate steep quotas to protect families from harsh and dangerous labor.


Dear Chairman Hong,

Over 10,000 children are suffering on your palm oil plantations. Living in squalor and working in harsh conditions, young children are denied an education, denied adequate pay, and simply denied the chance to be a child.

Your company has the resources to help these children and their parents, whose desperation leads them to put their children to work. Use your resources to help your employees and their families. End child labor on your plantations.

  6. Do parents in these regions make slaves out of their children? Less children allow for better education so that they all will raise above poverty.
