Yokasta, the daughter of a cocoa producer needs help to attend University!

If you have participated in Ingemann's Cocoa Academy you may remember Juan Flores and his family.

The Flores family are some of the most enthusiastic and hardworking cocoa producers in Nicaragua. The girl pictured below is Juan Flores’ Jr. oldest daughter, Yokasta Flores. She has just finished high school and her dream is to go to university and study Marketing, a wish that arose from her curiosity when filming with different marketing teams went to visit her family’s plantation.

Help Yokasta be the first woman in her family to go to University!

We have opened a campaign in GoFundMe to collect all the financial resources Yokasta needs in order to complete her university studies in Nicaragua. We hope that you can join us in this project, so we can help Yokasta succeed in her professional development and become the first woman in her family to enter to a university.

About the Funds 

The requested amount covers all the expenses in her 5 years of study: Registration Fee, Tuition Fee, Final Graduation course, Diploma and Graduation Ceremony Fee. She don't have to pay anything else to university.

Where funds will be withdrawn to and How funds will ultimately be delivered to Yokasta Flores outside of GoFundMe

Funds will be withdrawn to Ingemann Fine Cocoa’s mother company: Ingemann Components located in Denmark. Ingemann Components will transfer the money to Ingemann Fine Cocoa  in Nicaragua. Finally, Ingemann Fine Cocoa will transfer the money to Yokasta Flores’ University.

Please note that the campaign is set up to send funds to an account in the Danish currency, Danish Krone. But you can still donate! Keep in mind the conversion rate of 1USD : 6.7 DKK.

You will receive Updates on Yokasta's development!

We will publish one post a year in our social media channels, to thank her donors and keep them updated on her development.  If you prefer not to be announced as a donor in our posts, please make your collaboration as anonymous.

Yokasta´s first day at University!

Do you remember Yokasta? She is the daughter of one of our most hardworking and friendly Nicaraguan cocoa producers, Juan Flores. A month ago, we started the GoFundMe campaign to help Yokasta cover all her university expenses for the 4 years of study.

Yesterday was a huge day for Yokasta, it was her first day of class and we are tremendously excited for her. She is the first woman and first in her family to attend a university. She is studying marketing, a wish that arose from her curiosity when filming with different marketing teams during the Cocoa Academy.

So far, we have collected 25% of the goal so we kindly ask you to donate or share the campaign so we can reach the objective and help Yokasta fulfill her dreams.

Special thanks to our donors that made possible this first great step for Yokasta: Jean Thompson, hanna eiriks, Olafur Matthiasson, Kjartan Gíslason, Kyle Clunies-Ross, Jens Møller, Niels y Birgit Moller, Phil Landers.
