Rurality Project in Soubré, Ivory Coast

Key Activities

Collaborating with the mill

Earthworm Foundation has supported two cooperatives of Soubré to implement procedures that would strengthen the relationship between the mill and smallholders. A negotiation procedure has been put in place for conflict situations.

Connecting farmers

Meetings have been facilitated by Rurality allowing the farmers to discuss their harvesting issues and think of feasible solutions.

Farm management and diversification

Rurality has started a platform in three localities that allows staff working with cocoa, palm oil, hevea and food-producing cultures to meet and discuss.


Securing the Fresh Fruit Bunch supply and empowering the management of the cooperatives

Activities to secure the Fresh Fruit Bunch supply and empower the management of farmer cooperatives include training cooperative agents on geolocation and plantation mapping.

Improving farmer resilience

Rurality leads on-farm coaching to improve farm management and supports farmers by facilitating access to high-quality seedlings.

Preservation of the environment

Rurality is working with farmers to encourage the conservation of forest areas, while maintaining their living standards. Monthly Walk and Talks with the workers of SIPEFCI are organised to raise awareness of forest preservation and safety at work.
