About Project Hope and Fairness:

The mission of Project Hope & Fairness is to assist African cocoa farmers who suffer disproportionately from the inequities in the world cocoa trade with particular focus on the participation of chocolate producers and consumers in the United States.  Our purposes will be achieved through the following three activities: promote the sustainability of the African cocoa farmers through direct assistance (grants and in-kind contributions); educate American consumers about the realities of the world cocoa market and the inequities being suffered by African cocoa farmers in particular; and encourage producers of the world's cocoa products to adopt Fair Trade policies that will benefit African cocoa farmers.
