Chapter 21: Re-imagining community development: the Cocoa360 model
Enterprises arising from the intersection of for-profit and nongovernmental organization (NGO) sectors offer innovative possibilities for re-imagining community development strategies. Through an in-depth examination of the work of Cocoa360, an NGO in rural Ghana, this chapter examines how a particular social innovation is used to promote community development from the ground up. We describe the work of Cocoa360 and argue that its model is indeed a social innovation and show how this model might be leveraged for development projects in other rural, agricultural communities around the world.
