This event, celebrating the first graduating class of farmers that completed Cargill’s training focused on build new skills, was widely attended by many dignitaries (including the Cote d’Ivoire Minister of Agricultre), students, farmers and cocoa cooperatives.  This is really the only way to reach the estimated 900,000 farmers in CdI.  One of the speakers suggested that without certification programs, the farmers would likeky abandon many of their sustainability efforts.
