Wonderful news!

The US Agency for International Development recently awarded a grant to the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF) to launch the CocoaLink+ program in Cote d’Ivoire with World Education and its partners. World Education’s existing CocoaLink program, funded by WCF and the Hershey Foundation, uses mobile technology to communicate important agricultural and social information to thousands of cocoa farmers in Ghana.

CocoaLink+ will pilot the Ghana program model in Cote d’Ivoire, Africa’s largest cocoa producer. World Education has partnered with Cote d’Ivoire’s Le Conseil du Café-Cacao, the Grameen Foundation , and Orange Telecommunications Company to roll out CocoaLink+. The program will eventually be handed over to the Cote d’Ivoire government.

Support Ghanian farmers and their children by donating to World Education.
