Sakti's Farm Update

Posted on February 21, 2014 by Cocoa Care | 0 comments

Sakti's hard work properly managing his farm since completing training is December is starting to pay off!

Since December, Sakti has been a busy farmer pruning his trees and maintaining a good tree shape, cleaning up his farm floor, conducting routine pest management duties and fertilizing his trees. The training that was provided by your program gave Sakti a brilliant insight into how to properly manage his farm in order to increase the production of cocoa. 

During a routine visit to Sakti's farm by Cocoa Carer Darwis, we were able to capture these photos which shows quite a number of flowers visible on the trees with cocoa pods starting to come out. 

This time last year Sakti had no cocoa on his trees so this is certainly a positive sign that his productivity this eyar will be significantly better than previous years. 

A well managed cocoa farm and highly productive cocoa farm will generally have cocoa on the trees all year round, however this is less common these days as farmers lack the training to manage their farm in a sustainable way. 

Thanks to your sponsorship Sakti can now turn this around and increase his productivity which increases the family income allowing Sakti and his wife to better provide for their young family.

Help Is On The Way

On December 19, 2013 Cocoa Carer Zainuddin personally visited the family home of Rezki and presented her mother, Ibu Wahidah with the money to help her with University education as a part of your program sponsorship. 

Rezki's mother was a little emotional and her father visibly thrilled at your kindness. 

This money, which will pay for Rezki's University Fees and school books removes a huge amount of pressure for her parents who work so hard to support their daughter that they are clearly very proud of.

Sakti Receives His Tool Pack

Posted on December 17, 2013 by Cocoa Care | 0 comments

On December 6th, following his training in Tarengge, a humbled yet happy Sakti received his much needed tool pack. 

Ibrahim, like most cocoa farmers, lack the tools required to perform basic good agricultural practices (GAP) of pruning, fertilising, sanitation and harvesting however tried, where possible, to borrow basic tools from friends and neighbours. 

Thanks to your sponsorship Sakti now has his own tools, pest management spraying equipment, personal protective gear to keep safe and other items required to empower him to routinely apply GAP to increase his farm productivity and long term sustainability. 

 

Thank you for caring about Sakti and helping him to have a brighter future.
