Hello Tom, I am new here. I read the article about Broguhe and have a sewing machine that works well, it is an older model. Would it be of use for the sewing room? Let me know and I will see if I can connect with someone to get it there. Good Chocolate adventures to you! Jean SongWinds
Thanks so much for responding. I enjoyed reading your blog and I am really impressed of your initiatives to help cocoa farmers. I am also aiming for a Cacao Center, which is planned to be a one- stop shop and training center for cacao technology, processing, marketing, etc. in the Philippines. I am looking for a funding institution which can help me reach out the coconut and cacao farmers in my place. Cacao is planted as an intercrop to coconut trees in the Phlippines. Coconut farmers are the poorest sector in our country. This is an environment- friendly project which can provide them a sustainable additional income. I hope you can also include Philippines in your undertakings and I hope to have a fruitful partnership with you. God bless you and mahalo!
