Donations--Digging Tools (1)

These pictures are the property of Tom Neuhaus. You may use each as displayed on this site for free; please attribute the source (Tom Neuhaus, Project Hope and Fairness). For higher resolution, you can purchase the original for $5. To do this, visit and click the Donate button. Donate $5 per picture and then email me ( what pictures you want and I will send them back to you. Thank you in advance for donating cocoa farming tools to West African cocoa farmers by purchasing a picture.

Or, a yummy way to help the West African cocoa farmer is to purchase chocolate from my company, Sweet Earth Organic Chocolates. Or, visit Splash Cafe, my sister's restaurant. Splash Cafe and its sister business, Splash Cafe Artisan Bakery donate at least $2500 every summer to Project Hope and Fairness and makes my trips possible.


The biggest problem for villages all over the tropical world is inadequate roads. Given that most governments are too busy purchasing military hardware to help their own citizens, villagers need to take matters into their own hands. In order for the middleman to reach the village to buy the cocoa, in order for the children to travel to school, the roads must be passable. Picks and shovels are a low-tech way to improve the roads.
