This November, our team heads to Rwanda to implement a program that we have been working on for over a year, and we cannot wait to share all of our progress and some upcoming surprises!
Over the next four weeks, we are coming alongside twenty families, helping them to scale their coffee production to a level that will sustain their families. With your support, we are able to provide over 6,000 coffee trees to our farmers on Ruli Mountain. The income generated from the new trees will allow our farmers to send all of their children to school and put healthy food on the table. Some of our farmers, like JMV, hope to start side businesses, such as a taxi service, and Marcelline wants to put electricity in her home because then she "will be fully developed." Thank you for helping these farmers achieve their dreams. Thank you for giving them the opportunity they crave and deserve.
The farmers in our program have been preparing their land for the last 5 months, and they have been answering our questions, filling out our surveys, and posing for our pictures for the last year. We are beyond grateful to them for inviting us to be a part of their story, for welcoming us into their community and their lives with open arms, and we are eternally grateful to you for making it happen.
