Discover Chocolate and Live La Vida Cocoa!

This past December, one of the villages we visit every year was burned by members of the Ivorian Army, specifically pro-Ouattara forces.  Broguhe was pro-Gbagbo during the last election, so this is probably a form of punishment.  We (Project Hope and Fairness) are rebuilding the sewing room this week and electrifying it.  In any case, Ivory Coast, which supplies 40% of the world's cocoa, is slowly rebuilding from a civil war that started in 1993 and flashes on and off.

This is fascinating - I'm new so maybe you've already told everyone all about your group but I'd love to know more about what you are doing to help this area.  Thanks for sharing.
