About the region: Tenende is situated in southwest Tanzania near Lake Malawi. This chocolate bar is a Chocolate University Project. Chocolate University is a neighborhood outreach program of Askinosie Chocolate in which we inspire students about entrepreneurship, social business and a world beyond their own. Each year, we select a handful of high school students to partake in this collaborative learning experience and travel with Shawn Askinosie to Tanzania. Our first year, we funded a deep water well toprovide clean water to the 2,000 villagers of Tenende. We specifically sought a woman led cocoa farmers group and Mama Kyeja left an indelible impression on us all. This bar markets the first time a chocolate maker has traded directly with a Tanzania cocoa farmer group.
