Event:

Ghanian Cocoa Farmer to Visit Ten Thousand Villages, Media
Please join us as we welcome to Media, fair trade cocoa farmer and recorder of Asentum Kuapa Kokoo Society, Cecilia Appianum. Kuapa Kokoo is the sole source of cocoa beans for Divine Chocolate, a fair trade chocolate brand. What makes Kuapa and Divine so unique is that the 45,000 farmers of Kuapa Kokoo actually co-own the company, giving them a share of Divine's profits and a real voice in the global marketplace; in addition to the Fair Trade price and sociial premiums. Cecilia and a representative from Divine will visit our store from 1 to 3 pm on Saturday, February 9th, 2008 to tell her story and the story of her community in a world where buying FairTrade means that children of farmers go to school and many poor people have water to drink. Join us for conversation, coffee and chocolate samples...and remember, Valentine's Day is just around the corner ! Give someone you care for the chocolate that cares for others !
