This financial year, we will again be supporting the female farming co-operative of Cocagi, Rwanda with the purchase of additional 2 hectares of land, 8500 coffee plants, sunflower and banana plants.
Last year, the project was hindered by unpredictable weather which destroyed some crops we purchased and COVID-19 hindered additional training for the female farmers. To ensure the project reaches its full potential, we are continuing the support of this co-operative, purchasing an additional 2 hectares of land, more coffee plants and fertilizers to prepare the land for both the coffee seedlings, but also for the sunflower and banana plants. This additional crops will allow the women to make money from the land while the coffee plantation is being established.
You can follow the progress throughout the year on our social channels and blogs and see how your purchase is helping us make a difference to this community. After all we are; One Bean. One Cup. One Community.
