COFFEE WITH A CAUSE
Coffee throughout Latin America is traditionally grown in some of the most remote and impoverished areas imaginable. Coffee farm workers have extremely difficult lives and typically earn the equivalent of around $5/day. These farm workers normally have large families to provide for with few resources to go around. Many of these workers live hours from the nearest towns and have little access to a quality education for their children. This lack of education keeps their families stuck in a downward poverty cycle that will continue - unless something is done to help.
CSCOA has come up with an innovative approach to help bridge the education gap for the forgotten children living in the coffee producing areas of Latin America. Using a "boots on the ground" approach we're committed to making a lasting difference in the lives of these coffee farm workers and their children.
The profits generated from our sustainable farming programs and the incoming #coffeewithacause donations go back into the same coffee producing countries where the coffee originated. Funds go to help pay for educational materials, hire teachers and mentors and build new (or recondition existing) schools, churches and study centers. These educational resources help provide an easily accessible, quality education for the children in these remote areas. It's a win/win/win situation for gourmet coffee lovers and coffee farm workers, their children and their communities for generations to come.
