Last financial year (19/20), St Remio supported the female coffee Co-operative of Cocagi in West Rwanda. Consisting of over 1100 members, the project saw saw us purchase 4 hectares of land alongside 12,000 new coffee plants with additional seedlings to grow sunflowers, tree tomatoes, passionfruit and avocados. These additional seedlings allow the co-operative to earn income from the land while the coffee plantation is being established (which takes 3 years to cultivate your plantation before it is ready for harvest).
On our trip to Rwanda in June 2019, we visited the new site that we purchased on behalf of co-operative leader, Anna-Marie. This marks an exciting time in their community as it allows them to expand their land foot print and therefore their commercial viability.
Each purchase you make, allows us to continue to have a positive impact at the source and fund projects just like this.VIEW BLOG ARTICLES
