Good seeds for a good life.
Since the beginning of 2019, we have been engaging in conversations with coffee farming communities in the Sidama Region. In close cooperation with our local implementing partner we have begun to improve their capacity as growers through dedicated trainings. The trainings are spread through a total of six local districts thus far, all located in the picturesque highland of southern Ethiopia. The lesson plans cover the most important agricultural practices of coffee production, in order to sustainably increase both yield and harvest quality.
Our partner and implementeur in this venture is the international NGO TechnoServe, recently awarded for their impact in reducing poverty. With 50 years of experience and a clear focus on business solutions to poverty, TechnoServe supports people in developing countries to improve the value of what they produce. Instead of relying on handouts, the farmers are empowered to increase their income and better their livelihoods. Our partnership is based on the mutual belief that only when people have the skills and resources to improve their own incomes, are the resulting benefits sustainable.
