100Weeks breaks the cycle of poverty by giving women in the cocoa communities in Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire money.

Ghana (Suhum) & Côte d'Ivoire (Daloa, Meagui)

This innovative program has faith in women's ability to create a better future for themselves and their families if only given the chance via financial means. The project gives women €8 per week for 100 weeks. The women receive the money and also come together in weekly group meetings to manage their financials together. The Chocolonely Foundation believes this is an effective way of alleviating poverty and helping build strong communities.
