This is Yuvita Kogoya, 27 years old. She has been living in Efesus refugee camp near Sentani for over a year. In March of last year, her village was wiped out in a landslide.
Sponsor of Hapin, Iko Zijlstra, recently pointed us to a cocoa project in Aimbe. The cocoa cooperative, led by Derek Wanyambe, suffers for years from a poor harvest. The plants had a survival rate of up to five years, the yield and the quality of the bean was low and the plant was not resistant to disease.
