About the host:

Mariame Yayatoure is a cocoa expert, a children’s- activist & facilitator and trainer.
She was responsible for organizing the team in Daloa. Mariame: I have lived and worked in cocoa communities for about 20 years. The situation of the producers remains the least enviable in the cocoa value chain. It’s not fair to the producers and it’s especially not fair to the children who did not choose to be born in the cocoa communities that unfortunately remain in severly deprived places.

About the event:

For me the children in the GCD are like defendants on trial, drawing their ideas and solutions to defend themselves. The goal is to manage for the children’s ideas to convince the jury of adults, so that the adults assume their shared responsibilities in the defence of the children.

Anti-Waste Bin

This trash is equipped with both a computer allowing it to set certain parameters of use and a large box that will store food waste. The anti-waste bin uses a sensor with which it can sort out the spoiled foods that are not consumable and those that are still in good condition. Foods in good condition are rejected by the bin. If the food is waste the bin opens and receives the waste.

Seeding Machine

The seed machine is designed to combat hunger and deforestation. It gives farmers the opportunity to make planting seeds easier: a system can be used to enter how many seeds are required per hole. The plants also get water right away through a water mechanism that drips slowly.

Just-enough Machine

The Just-enough Machine can combat hunger and helps to make food at schools more efficient. Thanks to a knife and tube installed on the machine, the chef only needs to add the ingredients to the machine. These then come out cut to the right size and quantity. That way there is never too much food made.
