Entry: Charlie Feezel, World Cocoa Foundation
I am happy to introduce the newest member of the World Cocoa Foundation ECHOES team, Margaret Odotei. Margaret is the WCF Education Program Technical Coordinator for Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire and is based in Accra. Her presence will allow the WCF ECHOES Alliance to increase local partner communication and enhance program implementation, while growing WCF's relationships with host governments, implementing partners and WCF member companies.

Margaret brings with her a strong background in West African development, including work as a program officer for ANCEFA (Africa Network Campaign on Education for All), during which she oversaw the implementation of the Civil Society Education Fund in Burkina Faso, Liberia, Nigeria, and Ghana. Margaret holds a Masters Degree in International Relations and a Bachelors degree in French and Psychology. We welcome Margaret and look forward to her strong role in enabling broader program coordination.
