This popular workshop, created in collaboration with the makers of Divine chocolate,  uses imaginative props to teach students about the lives of cocoa farmers in Ghana, how the cocoa bean is produced, transported and processed and how buying Fairtrade chocolate makes a difference to small scale cocoa farmers. The workshop uses engaging props, role play and art to enable the children to empathise with cocoa farmers and understand the journey from bean to bar.
