AWA by Magnum
Supporting women in our cocoa farming communities all year round
Women play a vital role in our cocoa farming communities in Côte d'Ivoire, but with the farming season only lasting for six months of the year, we’re committed to providing them with year-round support.
So we’ve launched AWA by Magnum – an initiative that works to empower women in the cocoa farming communities of Côte d'Ivoire both socially and economically. Through funding and training, we’re supporting them to develop additional ways of earning a living from their interests, which will allow them to diversify their incomes.
It’s all part of our 2025 Cocoa Strategy. So far, we’ve committed to invest €25M into our wider cocoa impact programmes, with an emphasis on female-focused initiatives – because by investing in women, we’re also investing in their families and communities. But the work doesn’t stop there…
Our goal is to socially and economically empower 5,000 women in cocoa farming communities by 2025. And through our supply chain network we’re working alongside our charitable partners to do just that.
