Progress Report 2019/20
Creating impact in cocoa farming communities
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Cocoa Horizons activities continued while respecting strict precautionary measures to protect employees, coaches and farmers. In addition, specific support was provided to the farming communities including distribution of soap, masks, water stations, sanitizers and information related to COVID-19. Some specific activities like soap manufacturing were carried out to respond to the sanitary needs and to help farming communities diversify their income.
This year, the Foundation concentrated its efforts on scaling up high-impact activities to drive change on its focus areas: prospering farmers, community and environment. The program is currently present in Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Cameroon, Brazil, Indonesia and was successfully introduced in Ecuador this year.
