We have had a busy October launching Mutuntu Roast and preparing to go live with our Christmas online shop. Mutuntu means ‘afternoon’ in Lugandan and we thought it was the perfect name for our decaf. Look forward to hearing your feedback.
We are delighted that our profit continues to grow month on month. We continue to reach out to businesses who supply coffee. We would love to hear from you if there is an opportunity to supply your workplace.
This month we have been able to support three full time teachers and provide food to the local community for the month of November. During November children who live in the community but attend The Early Learning School will receive weekly food parcels. Families in the local community are hungry due to lack of jobs, therefore a community project has been set up to ensure that the children do not go hungry.
Christmas is coming! (too soon?)
As we approach Christmas we have launched ‘gifts with meaning’. Gifts that you can buy for your friends and family to support the children at the school. We have eleven different gifts for you to choose from. The money from each gift purchased will be sent to Uganda after Christmas. Your gift will be presented inside a blank Christmas card ready for you to write your own personal message. Our cards are designed and printed in Cambridge, UK by Triple Kiss Designs and printed on recycled coffee grain paper.
For those living in and around Cambridge we are hosting a special Christmas craft market on 27th November in Madingley Village Hall (CB23 8AB) where you can come and buy gifts from independent small businesses. We will be selling coffee as well as beautiful Ugandan handmade Christmas decorations.
Thank you again for your continued support and for all your
