Teachers love teaching… and chocolate

It’s no secret that we love all things chocolate here at World Class Teachers! Naturally, we were very excited when one of our lovely teachers and fellow chocoholics, Erik told us about his work with Fairtrade company ‘Divine Chocolate’.

Who are Divine Chocolate?

divine-chocolateDivine Chocolate has been selling Fairtrade chocolate bars in the UK since 1998 and now has over 50 products on offer around the world.

This company is particularly unique as its majority owned by those it aims to help: Kuapa Kokoo – an organisation set up by the cocoa farmers in Ghana.
Premiums through the sale of their Fairtrade products not only go towards helping farmers and their families, but have also been used to build schools throughout Ghana, which makes this a cause truly close to WCT’s hearts.

Why are we telling you?

In just a few days’ time it’ll be the start of Fairtrade fortnight (24th February – 9th March 2014), which takes place every year to increase awareness for Fairtrade products and ethical trading.
Divine Chocolate will be doing their bit by hosting some exciting workshops where you can try your hand at making that delicious treat we all know and love! Find out more below:
