Dear sustainability, fairness and chocolate fans,
we - fairafric a social start-up from Munich - want to revolutionize the chocolate world. We produce chocolate from the tree to bar in Ghana, in order to transfer the value chain to the country of origin. This is because 70% of the world's cocoa comes from West Africa, but less than 1% is processed there. Accordingly, the generated value remains in the Global North. By producing in the country of origin, we multiply local income and create real perspectives. For us, producing in Ghana means creating fair, well-paid jobs and creating fair working circumstances such as health insurance, paid overtime and canteen meals.
A month ago we started a Kickstarter campaign to collect 100,000 Euros to finance the first salaries and the missing ingredients for our new varieties. Are you interested in the topic? Then take a look here and support us: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fairafric/lets-start-a-solar-powered-chocolate-factory-in-rural-ghana/
If you are interested in an internship starting from October on (also later) this year or next year, please feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to receive unsolicited applications in the areas of marketing, operations or sales.
