100 weeks

100weeks breaks the vicious cycle of poverty by simply giving women in Ghana and Ivory Coast money.

Ghana (Suhum) & Ivory Coast (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. The project gave 100 women €8 per week for 100 weeks in Ghana. The project was also implemented in Ivory Coast with 400 women. They receive the money on their phones and are also taught how to manage money. The Chocolonely Foundation believes this is an effective way of alleviating poverty and helping build strong communities.
