WOMEN’S COFFEE PROJECT

Opportunities and growth for women

We want to talk to you about traceable, high-end coffees. Of plantations run by women farmers, of their value, of promoting gender equality and social equality.

Underlying the WOMEN COFFEE PROJECT is the desire to tell the story and the need to change the perception of the role of women in the world of coffee. Crucial with their unparalleled work, they must be known and recognized for the REAL VALUE they have.
Small plantations, high quality coffee and the work of a group of women who put their professionalism and passion into it can be told in a different, transparent and fair way. Starting right now, starting HERE.

Purpose of the Program.

1. Increase primary and secondary education for everyone up to age 21

2. Access to the National Health Service for all project participants

3. Construction of decent housing for plantation workers

4. Sustainable cultivation in monetary and environmental terms
