Suhum, Oct. 25, GNA - Cadbury Cocoa International Partnership, has adopted two communities in the Suhum Municipality to improve the living conditions of the people.
The communities are Kokoteasua and Safroasa. Mr Kwame Asa-Ofori, a chief farmer, disclosed this to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at a farmer’s forum at Kokoteasua on Thursday.
He said to that end the Cadbury Cocoa Partnership had constructed two boreholes and donated 15 solar lamps to the communities.
It also donated 25 spraying machines; two knap sack machines, and a number of bicycles to school children in the communities to facilitate their movement to school.
Mr Asa-Ofori recalled that in November 2010, Cadbury Cocoa Partnership led by two officers, Mrs Yaa Peprah Amekudzi and Mr James Boateng, visited the two communities and informed the farmers that they wanted to partner them for sustainable cocoa production, sustainable livelihood from other means, institutional engagement, rural development, child labour and suppressed malaria and HIV/AIDS.
