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.


The second most important port in Cote d'Ivoire, responsible for most exports, including cocoa products and timber, San Pedro gets its name from the Portuguese, the first Europeans to venture down the west coast, which was feared by some to harbor enormous monsters.
