Rice Hulling Machine in Depa
January 16th, 2013
Project Hope and Fairness built a structure and installed a rice hulling machine in Depa in 2013. Much of the money came from an individual grant. This machine greatly alleviates the hard labor women must endure daily in order to get a stew plus rice on the table. David Logbo is the youngest brother of Depa's chief. Depa is located near Issia, Côte d'Ivoire. David runs the rice mill which was built in 2013 by PH&F to hull rice for local farmers.
David also runs the Depa Chocolate Factory, which produces disks and bars. If cocoa farmers make their own chocolate and sell it locally.
