How does this gift help?

Across the Solomon Islands, there are three million cocoa trees, yet many are poorly maintained and do not produce well. Cocoa plantations are a valuable resource. So Oxfam is providing saws, shears and holding workshops on Integrated Pest and Disease Management (IPDM). With healthy plantations, family incomes are set to rise.

Brian Routa (26) learned how to prune and care for cocoa trees at an Oxfam training in Raho village: "This training is very important. If I take good care of these cocoa trees, it will help me in the future. Before, I just planted cocoa, but I didn't have any idea how to prune. So I'm happy today. I also got tools and seeds after the flash flooding. So, big thank you to Oxfam for providing this help."
