Divine Chocolate & Christian Aid...

The English Faculty would like to draw your attention to another competition opportunity:

This year’s theme: Where does the chocolate journey begin?

The key ingredient in chocolate is cocoa. Most of the cocoa you eat comes from the rainforests of West Africa, where farmers tend their cocoa trees on small family farms. This is where the chocolate journey begins.
