Lucia’s Story: A photo pack about cocoa farming by the Gola Rainforest

This story will transport you to a farm in Western Sierra Leone where you will have the chance to meet an inspiring cocoa farmer named Lucia Mansaray.

Lucia is determined to make enough money to provide for her family while also protecting her forest home.

This resource will teach students about the Gola Rainforest, forest friendly cocoa farming and the benefits of Fairtrade. At the end of the story you will find a list of suggested follow-up activities to consolidate student learning.
