Sticking true to your values. Impressive. https://t.co/Jj2yI5TMQv
Lida told me it was a special day because she'd never had a white person on her farm before. I told her the special day was mine as it was the first time I'd met a cocoa farmer. She gave me a bag of mangoes from her tree and made me pledge to return in the future. I surely will
It's not easy, indeed, it's really hard but she's an amazing person. My colleagues @TheForestTrust are helping her to improve the ag practices and diversify into other crops as the family suffers food shortages at times during the year.
This is Maman Lida and Papa Zekeu. They're in love. So much so that Maman Lida works their small farm almost entirely on her own. Papa Zekeu has a chronic illness and can't do physical labour. Lida told him "I need you to live" so she does all the work on their plot https://t.co/VMppA1Hio8
@nhranum @orangulandtrust @RSPOtweets @orangutans @visiblyme @GAR_Sinarmas @TheForestTrust @BastienSachet @HilaryThompson1 @ClaireComms @TFTMalaysia @TFTIndonesia And...RSPO isn’t relevant for the majority of suppliers. Remember, all those big guys with RSPO deforested years ago, big time so they’re not so relevant now. It’s the SMEs and smallholders doing the cutting and most care little for RSPO
