Empowering Women Through Sustainable Cocoa Farming

SOURCE: General Mills

DESCRIPTION:

In honor of International Women's Day this week, we want to highlight one of the female farmers we work with to grow cocoa for our products.

Meet Rebecca Mensah, a farmer in Ghana where cocoa farming is the primary occupation. Mensah is part of CARE's cocoa sustainability initiative. Because of the program, she said, "Now, I am able to provide support for my children’s education, because I have a source of income. This gives me the strength and opportunity to contribute to household decision-making."
