Yesterday we hosted a wonderful Christmas market in our local village hall. We had a great turn out and raised over £800 for the children in Uganda. The money raised will support Ruth start a professional cookery course in January. Ruth has been living at the school since she was 5 years old and is now ready to start a new career. We have had the pleasure of watching Ruth grow up and we are delighted that she has the opportunity to follow her dreams of becoming a professional chef.
We continue to support the teachers' monthly salaries through profits from coffee sales. This month we are able to support eight full time teachers as well as paying for the community food bundles. Hazel leads the community project and is doing a wonderful job supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged children who attend the school.
Schools in Uganda are due to re-open in January 2022 after nearly a two year break due to the Covid pandemic. The children are eager to get back to school and start learning again.
If you would like to gift coffee for Christmas we have unique handmade Ugandan fabric gift bags for £9.95. We have received new fabric bags from Uganda this week in wonderful bright African fabrics. Please ping Hannah an email if you would like to specifically choose a bag design. The gift comes with a 250g bag of coffee (your choice of which coffee and beans or ground!) as well as a gift tag and information about us.
Finally, we will be launching our new roast in the next few weeks. Kumaacha Roast (meaning morning in Lugandan) is a Ugandan blend of Arabica and Robusta. For those who enjoy a stronger coffee then Kumaacha Roast is for you! We will let you know as soon as it hits the website.
Thank you once again for your continued support.
