Côte d’Ivoire is one of the world’s largest producers of cocoa, and female farmers like Léonie Osso Sona are responsible for growing a large portion of the yearly crop. Because women tend to invest their profits back into their home and family, the community is growing in terms of health, opportunities for education, and sustainability. Léonie is now the president of Offa Village Women’s Farmer Association, assisting women with land rights issues and bringing training to the community. Photo credit: Britta Wyss Bisang
