Therese’s Story: A photo pack about basic human needs

This story will transport you to a farm in Côte d’Ivoire where you will have the chance to meet an inspiring cocoa farmer named Therese Kouame.

Therese’s story is a fantastic way to teach students about cocoa farming in Cote d’Ivoire, basic human needs and the importance of a living income for cocoa farmers. At the end of the story you will find a list of suggested follow-up activities to consolidate student learning.
