The TBCE’s 17-acre cocoa farm provides a dual purpose: volunteer labor hours worked at the farm by community members provide free education for their daughters at the girls’ school, and our team is able to test Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) for cocoa farming and improve crop yields.
The Tarkwa Breman Girls’ School (TBGS) is a tuition-free primary school. Parents volunteer their labor on our TBCE cocoa farm in exchange for access to a tuition-free education for their daughters. TBGS has 167 students enrolled in six grade levels, with a new class of 30 girls enrolled each September.
Our community health clinic was established to address the community’s need for access to affordable, quality healthcare. Today, our clinic provides subsidized care for the community of Tarkwa Breman and the 7 nearby villages.
Because Cocoa360 is a community-based and community-driven initiative, it works with the Village Committee, who serves as the link between the organization and the community to ensure that the programs are continually in line with the needs of the community.
