HELPING WOMEN GROW CASSAVA01 FEB 2017/DARRELL/SWITZERLAND
The Nestlé Cocoa Plan is helping women to group together and grow cassava, which is one of the staple food in Cote d'Ivoire. This is so they can sell it to generate some income for themselves and their family, in particular to help them send their children to school. This is combined with education about the importance of schooling for children and the hazards of having children working in the fields. Our partner in this work is the International Cocoa Initiative.
