How their communities grow

Green Awakening coffee also offers the following social benefits:

  • Supporting women entrepreneurial efforts by marketing, "Café Mujer", a coffee grown solely by women. This effort increases their social, economic and political power within their communities.
  • Creating an Education Fund for the children of our farmers: We give 50¢ of every sale to an education fund self-managed by the cooperatives to help provide school supplies and support education initiatives for their children.
  • Offering training and technical support programs: We want to help small farmers increase their crop yields by as much as 100%. These programs will be possible thanks to a partnership with local official institutions.
  • Providing a real alternative to illegal crops: Collaborating with the American and Peruvian governments in the Coca Substitution Program by providing attractive alternative crops to farmers.
