Since the founding of our organization in November 2006, we produced an educational DVD on the origin of cacao.  The organization had a celebration and reception to present the project in Antigua Guatemala. It brought awareness to the rich cultural history of cacao in Guatemala.  Currently we plan to visit and survey sites & research the success of other similar-minded regional organizations, as well as potential commercial linkages.
