What lies behind the production of gold in Burkina Faso

Found in jewellery, watches and even computers: Gold.

But where does this precious metal come from and how was it mined?

The documentary «La fièvre de l'or»(the gold fever) on RTS (Radio Télévision Suisse) gives answers to these questions. It provides insights into the production of gold in Burkina Faso and deals with topics such as child labour, human rights violations and the question of ethical gold. The project of Terre des hommes supported by the LED is also presented. You can find the 45-minute french documentary via the following link: «La fièvre de l'or».
