Divine Chocolate and the Kuapa Kokoo Farmers Cooperative – the fair trade farmers who own Divine – are teaming up to improve access to education for children of cocoa farmers in Ghana through sustainable transportation.
Rural schools can be far from home. When it takes hours to get to and from school it means there is little time left to play, do homework, or do household chores. The Kuapa Sakrele project supplies bikes, maintenance training and support that help more kids stay in school while supporting local businesses and renewable resources.
You can help! For every bar of Divine Chocolate sold between May 19, 2014 and June 19, 2014 in Barnes & Noble College Bookstores, Divine will put $1 into a pilot program to supply bamboo bikes made in Ghana from the Ghana Bamboo Bikes Initiative to children of cocoa farmers in rural villages.
