EDUCATE. ENRICH. EMPOWER.
The "Cocoa for Schools" project is committed to improve the lives of thousands of cocoa farmers and their families in the Kyela, Busokelo and Rungwe districts of Mbeya, Tanzania. Investing in education is a huge part of this programme, as it has been shown to be the single most effective way of getting out of poverty.
Through the “Cocoa for Schools” project, Kim’s Chocolates works tirelessly to improve the infrastructure for education in the local communities. Our target is to build, complete or renovate in the next 10-12 years around 1900 classrooms and teacher's offices and to distribute around 430.000 school books. Beyond education, the project also assists farmers in a number of ways, including teaching agricultural skills, distributing new cocoa seedlings and providing solar electricity generating devices.
