Funds Earmarked for Ivory Coast Efforts

Jacobs Foundation
The Jacobs Foundation announced a $52 million commitment over seven years to support education, women’s empowerment, and community development in Ivory Coast cocoa-farming communities. Transforming Education in Cocoa Communities, a partnership with the private-sector effort CocoaAction, will work to accelerate sustainable growth and economic change for cocoa farmers. The program, announced at the Clinton Global Initiative Middle East & Africa meeting last week, aims to reach more than 200,000 people by 2022.
