Climate Change and Deforestation

Climate change and deforestation are both major threat to cocoa farmers, cocoa farming profession and cocoa growing communities, which as a result helps increase the already vulnerable situation for farmers.

With this campaign we want to sensitize and train cocoa farmers especially smallholder farmers on climate smart farming and how to minimize impact, so they can grow and manage their cocoa farming business in a sustainable way. Additionally, farmers will also be train, supported to increase yields of cocoa crop to earn enough income with zero deforestation.

Women in Cocoa (Gender Equality)

Women are already working hard in cocoa farms to support their spouses or as farm workers, to earn income and support their family. Women are not allowed or have the support to own farms because of tradition and lack access to finance to invest to start cocoa farm.

Holding back efforts to build women capacity, in this case to become professional cocoa farmers, automatically means women will not be able to be independent, theretofore, with this campaign we aim to raise awareness to create the choice for women to be supported to own cocoa farmers and become empowered. Similarly, We encourage young talented women in cocoa growing communities into a professionalized cocoa farming to secure a better future.
