EMPOWERING SMALL SCALE FARMERS IS THE KEY TO SAVING THESE CHILDREN

Chef Kone Abdoulaye, founder of IAA knows firsthand what it is to grow up in poverty. Born in Yamoussoukro (Cote D’Ivoire) among poor farmers, he saw what the lack of food and opportunity was doing to his country. His conviction to break the cycle of poverty led him to become a very successful executive chef with a resume representing his successes at the famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Blue Door at the Delano Hotel in South Beach Miami.
Knowing that these opportunities are rare for the children in Africa, he is passionate that every child should be given the opportunity to reach his God given potential. In Cote D’Ivoire, agriculture leads the way for such opportunities and that is the goal IAA for the children and families in Cote D’Ivoire.

STEPS TO SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS

International Agro-Alliance (hereafter referred to as IAA) has developed strategic partnership with educational and agricultural institutions (Florida International University, ANADER and Cote d'Ivoire Ministry of Agriculture) to mitigate hunger and poverty in Cote d'Ivoire.

HOW CAN YOU BE A PARTNER

To help reduce food shortage in Cote d’Ivoire, agricultural mechanization must be a priority and IAA has committed all 265 acres of its farm land in the Ivory Coast for the purpose of feeding the poor.

Little Facts about the Ivory Coast

An estimated 65 languages are spoken in Côte d'Ivoire. One of the most common is Dyula, which acts as a trade language. French, the official language, is taught in schools and serves as a lingua franca in the country. There are only 12 physicians per 100,000 people. About a quarter of the population lives below the international poverty line of $1.25 a day. 4% of the population is of non-African ancestry. Many are French, Lebanese, Vietnamese and Spanish citizens, as well as Protestant missionaries from the United States and Canada.
