Live Long


In 2017, our sourcer Cédric Robin launched an initiative to improve access to education in Ghana, alongside our partner FEDCO. Seeing that there was a pressing need to support education in the region Cédric worked with FEDCO and local education representatives to develop a long-term solution. The result: a far-reaching project to reach eight communities over the next five years, including over 800 producers and 2500 children.

Our investments will go towards addressing the needs identified by the communities involved, including refurbishing school buildings and providing educational supplies. We’re already off to a good start: in 2017 we’ve built two new schools with FEDCO in the villages of Wassa Nkran and Pieso.

Our commitment to improving access to education in Ghana is part of our focus on creating long-term partnerships with cocoa producers. Through our relationship with FEDCO, which dates back to 2013, we work to invest our partnership premium into improving infrastructure and access to priority needs, such as education, thus helping cocoa producing communities to thrive.
