Buy a gift where every penny of profits are used to fund education for the children attending the Early Learning School, Entebbe. The profits are used to fund teachers salaries.

Profits in January

In January we were able to fully fund the staff salaries. The 28 staff at the school are so grateful that they are getting their salaries on time and getting paid for their amazing work.

It's incredible that 140 children are receiving quality education through coffee!

There is a HUGE need for us to raise money for secondary school fees. Currently school education stops at 13 years old unless the children have sponsors. It costs £40 per month to support a child through secondary school - that's about x5 1kg bags of coffee!

Thank you for all your support and love of coffee.

  • Education

    To ensure that disadvantaged children in the local community have an education and are able to fullfil their hopes and dreams. We support The Early Learning School in Entebbe, Uganda. The school is home to 160 children from 3-13 years.

  • Funding teachers

    We value teachers. Through funding their monthly salaries the children at The Early Learning School are able to attend school without paying fees.

  • Food bundles

    As part of the community project we provide weekly food bundles to ensure the children and single mothers eat healthy and nutritious food. The food is grown on a farm near Kampala which is linked to the school.

Tree planting in Uganda

We plant Matoke (planain) plants in Uganda to provide food for the local community as well as off setting our emissions.

As well as Makoke plants we also plant orange, mango and avacardo trees.

Providing food to the local community is an important part of our project and ensure that the children come to school with a full tummy.
