COCOBOD Education Support program
Ghana Cocoa Board has been able to relieve the burden on society regarding education. COCOBOD knows what education can lead to and the great benefit it will have in the country so it has been able to embark on these educational projects:
a) Construction of Schools; COCOBOD helped in the building of the trust schools. Some years ago, the Board granted the defunct Ghana Educational Trust an amount of 5 million Cedis for the building of Secondary Schools in various parts of the country.
Some selected schools in the country have benefited from COCOBOD’s free computers and this has spared such schools the burden of borrowing computers and also enhanced their Information Communication Technology skills.
The Board supports agriculture clubs in tertiary institutions. An example is the University of Professional Studies, formerly Institute of Professional Studies where there is an established club called the Cocoa Advocates Movement.
This club helps students of the school to appreciate the cocoa industry and develop an interest in it.
b) The Cocoa Farmers Scholarship Scheme
