THE STORY:

Join Eric, Edward and T. Ben in giving hope to coffee women in the Congo!

We’ve all heard the horrific accounts of ongoing fighting in the Congo. In late 2012, the Kivu region was again struck by violence, leaving communities reeling. Women once again bore the brunt of the brutality. The violence continues today.

Kivu is a coffee-producing region, and communities have been beginning to rebuild this sector, facing tremendous hardships in the process. International buyers are taking interest in the coffees, and coffee is providing the people with a connection to the outside world and a glimmer of hope for their future.

Coffee people are caring and enjoy having fun together and making a difference.  JavaJog brings it all together! In Seattle, the three of us are participating in a 10K race that will raise funds for coffee women in Eastern Congo who've been the victims of heartbreaking violence, but who possess so much wisdom, tenacity and high hopes for the future.

Forging these kinds of partnerships brings life to the coffee community. The first Race, held early one cold, windy morning in Boston, brought everyone together in solidarity with women in Congo whose lives on a daily basis are infinitely more harsh than the bitter winds we faced. To consider their courage – to understand, to advocate and to do more – together.
