Chocolatier Felchlin opens classrooms in Madagascar

Swiss chocolatier Felchlin has set up a project to provide financial support for a school in Ambalavelona, a town with 3,000 residents in the cacao region of Madagascar.

The project is part of the company's sustainability policy, which aims to always exceed Fairtrade levels and environmental and social compatibility (as part of the Felchlin Cacao Charta). The goal is to sustainably support the complete sociocultural structure of each location.

It will enable 30 to 40 students to continue their education in Mathematics, French and Agricultural Studies.

The contribution from the Felchlin Cacao Fund has already supported projects including a composting initiative in Grenada, technical support in Ecuador, and science and technology projects in Costa Rica.
