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 machete is the most important tool of the cocoa farmer. It is used for digging, weeding, cutting vegetables and meat for dinner, harvesting cocoa pods, cutting open cocoa pods, etc. We deliver machetes by purchasing them in Accra or Abidjan and driving them to the villages.
