For the benefit of projects of the Collibri Foundation
The profits are among other things donated to the Rikolto training course which enables 300 young farmers in Nicaragua to learn how to cultivate cocoa in a sustainable way. This collaboration between the Collibri Foundation and Rikolto aims to create better future prospects for young people in rural areas by strengthening their technical and entrepreneurial competences (leadership, teamwork, communication, etc.) In addition, the projects provide financial support as well as guidance and coaching to enable farmers to develop their cocoa plots and set up their business activities. The long-term goal? Generate jobs with stable incomes, stop the rural exodus and stimulate the community economy.
