Join me on my 7th annual trip to help cocoa farmers in Ghana and Ivory Coast. These two countries produce more than 55% of the world's cocoa. Their farmers are extremely poor, and their poverty makes possible the mainstream chocolate that some of us enjoy.
We will land in Accra, purchase cocoa storage bags, travel to Ebekawopa, Ghana, donate a dryness meter and 100 cocoa storage bags, measure the effectiveness of the solar cocoa drier we built last year, then travel to Ivory Coast, where we will visit three villages that just received cocoa scales from my NGO, Project Hope and Fairness
We will also visit a village where we just dug a 180-feet-deep well and Saf Cacao, the fourth largest cocoa buyer in Ivory Coast. There are lots of other adventures in this action-packed 7 day trip, costing $4,000, which includes travel costs from NYC to Accra and back (with a stop in Casablanca for a little fun in the souk).
