We recently returned from a visit to the village of Petit Bondoukou in Côte d’Ivoire, where the program is already reaching that community. Below are a few pictures from that trip, where we visited a school and met with Joel Yao, an operator of one of the newly-opened Cocoa Village Centers (CVCs) that are so critical to our efforts there. You’ll be hearing more about Joel, who is successfully managing his CVC and working with farmers throughout his community, in the weeks to come but in the meantime, please enjoy these photos.
