The goal for the Seattle 2014 JavaJog is to raise $30,000 for women in coffee farming communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo. “There are 8 farmer organizations in the region – Sopacdi is just one. And, by raising more money, we could help to link the groups together, and invest in activities across the region working together with local, community based organizations. There is no doubt that the need is great, and if we can strengthen our impact through sponsorships. JavaJog’s ‘Founders Run’ was held in Boston, April 12, 2013. Fifteen runners participated, raising $7500, which was donated to the women’s committee of the Sopacdi farmer’s cooperative in South Kivu, DRC.
