Co-creating opportunities for cocoa communities

Chocolonely Foundation, 2016-present

Dr. Monk, how might we co-create solutions that would help put an end to poverty in the cocoa communities in West Africa?

What do local farmers, laborers, communities, children, experts and creatives see when they look at the cocoa sector?

Together with them, we did research to uncover challenges and opportunities in the communities. Afterwards, we ideated possible solutions that would seamlessly suit the context. And currently, we are prototyping and expanding several ideas for the Chocolonely Foundation, with a diversity of exciting partners. This includes the Choco Box - a fund for homegrown ideas to improve lives in cocoa communities.
