+ REVIVING LOCAL COCOA ECONOMY
With over 1000 direct jobs created since its launch and lease payments from land rental, the company is proud to share the value generated by our project with the plantation’s neighboring communities. It offers salaries that are higher than average for the sector and has established safety as its primary priority.
+ GENDER EQUALITY
The company encourages gender equality in all of its departments. The overarching aim is to reach gender parity in the workforce. Through its planned small-scale cocoa entrepreneurship programs, the company will aim to impart training and planting material to women in local communities, thus catalysing additional revenue streams and resulting self-sustanibility.
+ EDUCATION AND HEALTH
The company has funded the building of a school and an onsite healthcare center that is fully equipped and run two full time nurses and a doctor. After bringing electricity into the plantation, KKO International is worked with the neighboring villages to ensure that they are able to eventually connect up to the network. Alongside this, it has already funded several drinking water supply installations and well as building roads to facilitate access to the villages.
