Meet Grace “Adom” and Shadrack, our founder and CEO; cousins and elementary school classmates. Even though Adom always placed above her cousin in class exams, Shadrack was the one to attend high school and then college.
This is Adom’s father, a cocoa farmer and a father of three sons and two daughters. His economic condition, coupled with the financial barriers to education such as tuition fees and uniform costs, forced him to make the difficult decision to end his daughters’ education after elementary school.
Our mission is to change Adom’s story for the future of Ghana’s female students. By utilizing community owned cocoa resources, we are raising funds that go directly into breaking the cost barriers to education. When coupled with comprehensive training and curriculum development provided by Cocoa360’s experienced education team and university partners, this model will transform education outcomes for boys and girls alike.
Today, Adom’s two daughters are attending the Tarkwa Breman Girls’ School and their future potential is endless.
