Video messages from Côte d'Ivoire

On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the German Initiative on Sustainable Cocoa (GISCO), cocoa farmers involved in the PRO-PLANTEURS project report on the progress they have made since the start of the project.

 

Planteurs
Our Project PRO-PLANTEURS: Learn more about the role of women in the cocoa sector, how cocoa is produced and how trainings help farmers to professionalise in sustainable cocoa farming.

PRO-PLANTEURS

The aim of PRO-PLANTEURS is to professionalise 30,000 cocoa-producing farms and their organisations in the south of Côte d'Ivoire in order to improve the living conditions of the families through an increase in income and a balanced diet.

Mamadou Zie Bamba, director of one of the cooperatives of the project, confirms the success. Through training, the entire management and in particular the accounting of his organisation could be significantly improved.
