Asijah Receives Her Tools

Posted on December 30, 2013 by Cocoa Care | 0 comments

On December 20, 2013 Cocoa Carer Zainuddin delivered the harvest pack you kindly sponsored to Asijah. 

Asijah and her husband Sakti are a lovely enthusiastic young couple who are working hard to bring back the productivity of their farm. Sakti has already received training and tools, along with new cocoa trees, as a part of other programs so your womens harvest pack for Asijah compliments that perfectly. 

Asijah has received a pack designed for work such as pruning, harvesting and farm sanitation including personal protective equipment as well as to help her carry enough water and food with her while working in the farm.

Previously, Asijah simply went without the tools necessary to perform her work making do with whatever she could find in the home and carrying very little (if any) food & water into the farm for her work day. Your harvest pack will significantly help Asijah to perform her duties in the cocoa farm effectively, efficiently and safely and also allow her to spend more time at home with her young family. 

 

We will continue to monitor Asijah and her family over the next 12 months so please bookmark this page and check back soon.

Meet The Recipient Of Your Support

Posted on December 16, 2013 by Cocoa Care | 0 comments

We are pleased to introduce you to Asijah who will be receiving the harvest pack you have sponsored. Asijah is the wife of farmer Sakti and mother to 5 year old daughter Vania. In addition to managing the family home, Asijah is very active in their 1.4ha cocoa farm particularly at harvest time.

Sakti is currently active in another program that will replace a large number of their dead trees and provide him with tools and training so this womans pack complements this program nicely by giving them both the equipment needed to perform their roles on the farm.

This pack will significantly help Asijah to perform her role in a safer and more time effective manner allowing her to spend more time at home with her daughter.

Sponsorship Received

Thank you for sponsoring a ladies harvest pack! 

One lucky lady living and working in the cocoa farms will receive a complete harvest pack which is essential for her to perform her duties on the farm in a productive and safe way. This pack also includes a wheelbarrow which is one of the most powerful tools a woman can have on the farm. 

Women on cocoa farms will often carry bags of pods or wet beans that are far too heavy for their tiny frames, or if a bag is simply too heavy for them they have to wait around for a male farmer to help her. A wheelbarrow changes this for her - no more carrying heavy bags and no more waiting around for help. 

With a wheelbarrow, tools and safety equipment the recipient of your harvest pack will be able to perform her job more effectively and safely and spend more time at home with her children. 

A woman's role in cocoa farming is critical and we thank you for supporting one of the women on our meet the farmers page. 

We will post photos and updates for you via this blog page so please check back soon.
