Sophi reports from Ghana:

Sophi at the grand unveiling

Wednesday 4th August : We attended the unveiling of a statue that Kuapa Kokoo commissioned to commemorate the significant role cocoa farmers have played in the social and economic history of Ghana.  Most people in Ghana have cocoa farmers to thank for their education as cocoa has been such a significant income generator over the last century.  The statue stands on a road island in central Kumasi where Kuapa Kokoo have their Headquarters.
