  • Education

    To ensure that children in the local community have access to education and are able to fulfill their hopes and dreams. We support The Early Learning School in Entebbe, Uganda. The school educates 370 children aged between 3-13 years. Where possible we also fund the school fees for secondary aged children.

  • 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. The school serves the local community of single mothers who without our support their children would not be able to attend school.

  • Food

    We provide food for the school and community families. Food prices in Uganda have increased three times since 2021. This makes it hard for families to provide nutritious meals. We buy rice and beans from the local market and matoke and maize is grown on a farm near Kampala which is linked to the school.

Tree planting in Uganda

We have partnered with Regenerate Africa to plant trees! We will be planting one tree for every 20kg of coffee sold. We are on target to plant 50 trees per month 🌳

Regenerate Africa identified that Uganda is losing 50,147 hectares of forest cover annually, equivalent to 8.2 million tonnes of CO₂ per annum. At this rate, Uganda will have lost most of its forests by 2050 😔

Let's look after our world one cup of coffee at a time.

On a farm outside Kampala we plant Matoke (planain) plants to provide food for the school children & local community.

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