"We believe that positive change comes from farmers and community members getting together to build plans that are based on their needs and are focused on the long term. This creates ownership and empowerment in shaping the future of cocoa. Working with our partners and the Indonesian government, we’re helping cocoa farming families create the kind of communities they want to live in, and inspiring the next generation."
