Thank you SK, Dephanie and Little En for your sponsorship of two womans tool packs and one farmer training pack.
Your training program will provide one cocoa farmer with formal in-class training in good agricultural practices (GAP) at the Mars Cocoa Academy School along with on-farm training with a Cocoa Carer to help your farmer implement his learnings back in his own farm.
Farmers traditionally lack the essential skills and knowledge in GAP and your training will significantly help the receipt of your training program to have healthy and successful cocoa farming businesses.
In addition, two lucky women will receive tools and materials which are essential for them to perform their duties on the farm in a productive and safe way allowing them to perform their jobs more effectively and spend more time home with their 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 of your program progress via this blog page so please check back soon.
