Cocoa Farming

In cooperation with different partners, Aflatoun has adapted and contextualised its curriculum to the Cocoa Farming business. The programme is part of the Youth Forward Initiative and focuses on improving the capacity of economically-disadvantaged young people to find quality employment or start their own businesses in the cocoa business. The students taking part in the programme receive education on agricultural practices and numeracy, financial and social skills, training on business tools and are encouraged to develop plans for their own farms. Each academy also has a model farm, which allows practical application of the acquired skills.
