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 , Sweet Earth Organic Chocolates. Or, visit Splash Cafe. Splash Cafe and its sister business, Splash Cafe Artisan Bakery donate at least $2500 every summer to Project Hope and Fairness and make the trips possible.


Malaria kills about 1 million people per year. Cocoa farmers, who live in the tropics, are especially susceptible to the disease, as they live in the country where there's plenty of standing water.

Arsene is suffering from a bout of malaria. It's over 90 degrees, and he's wearing a sweater! Malaria starts by knocking you flat, and you often spend a week suffering debilitating bouts of fever.
