Denver, Colorado — September 2, 2015 Today, Patrick and Mara Tcheunou, founders of Smart Globe International (“SGI”) announce a crowdfunding campaign to seek support in building sustainable farms in the Central African nation of Cameroon, Patrick’s homeland. The project starts with the development of approximately 1,000 acres of land on two farms of fair trade Arabica coffee and cocoa for export to the United States.
This is exciting news for coffee and cocoa lovers. Data shows the demand for coffee and chocolate products has been increasing while production has decreased. To make matters worse, a 2011 report published by the Bill and Melinda Foundation warns that chocolate might soon become a luxury product because of climate change. SGI’s farms are expected to create immediate job opportunities in Cameroon and in Denver, Colorado.
SGI’s Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign seeks to raise $105,000 to purchase seeds for coffee, cocoa and their bio-diversification crops. The crowdfunding campaign will run for 40 days and the SGI seeks support from people interested in supporting an organization committed to sustainable farming and social causes in Cameroon. “We believe that our company can care about the environment, community, and offer a quality product while still making profit.” Smart Globe International CEO Patrick Tcheunou said.
Patrick and Mara have no doubt that this will be a great undertaking and are confident of the success and the potential to help communities in Cameroon while advancing the causes of sustainable and fair trade farming. “We’re thrilled to launch our campaign as we know that we’ll be aiding Cameroonians while providing desirable coffee and cocoa to consumers,” Smart Globe International co-founder Mara Trager Tcheunou said.
Anyone interested in supporting SGI’s crowdfunding campaign is encouraged to donate via http://igg.me/at/smartglobe and share the effort on social media platforms.
