Our Project-Based Learning programme outcomes in Sicily, Courage Chocolate, has worked on special Valentine’s Day gifts that have not only been part of giving young migrant women a new life but will also be a unique gesture for your loved ones.
The Youthful Herbal Chocolate project based in Sicily, is a global partnership between Gaia Education, Lush, Passwork, L’Arcolaio, RSF Social Finance, Global Whole Being Fund and Antica Pasticciera Corsino. It has been supporting the professional development of a group of young female migrants, primarily from Nigeria, who are searching for a new life after leaving their conflicted place of origin to escape violence and despair.
Courage Chocolate is the outcome of the Herbal Youth Project, which builds the capacity of young women arriving in the region of the richest concentrations of biodiversity in Europe in terms of medicinal and aromatic herbs. The project combines the wild herbs of the Iblei territory with the traditional art of chocolate making of Sicily with a view of opening opportunities for the young women in organic herbal chocolate making.
Courage Chocolate and Sicilian social cooperative partner L’Arcolaio have been working on two chocolate editions:
- CHOCOLATE WITH CITRUS & BASIL
- CHOCOLATE WITH ALMONDS & MARIGOLD
