THE STORY:

(Abajo, versión en español) Have you ever wondered where your morning coffee comes from? Now is your chance to support small-scale coffee farmers in Colombia while sponsoring my tuition fee. Every dollar counts! I am Sonia a PhD candidate with the University of Warsaw, Poland. This year, I’m sel-funding my studies and expenses. Please consider making a contribution towards my PhD tuition, so I can finish this research project and PhD thesis. If I cannot find a way to pay the tuition fee, I will be unable to finish the project none my PhD. The objective of my research is to improve the precarious living standards of coffee producers (especially that of smallholders and pickers) while ensuring the production of high-quality coffee, as well as continued adherence to environmental standards within the Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia. If you become a contributor, I will send you field updates so you can get to know the people that you are helping as well as the beautiful natural landscape which surrounds them. Gracias, Sonia Uribe Ph.D. Candidate Faculty of Geography and Regional Studies The University of Warsaw, Poland ¿Alguna vez ha pensado de donde proviene el café que toma en las mañanas? Ahora es su oportunidad de descubrirlo! ... y apoyar a los productores de café a pequeña escala en Colombia, mientras patrocina mi matrícula. Cada dólar cuenta! Soy Sonia, estudiante de doctorado en la Universidad de Varsovia, Polonia. Este año, estoy financiando mis estudios y gastos. Por favor considere hacer una contribución a mi matrícula de doctorado, así puedo terminar este proyecto de investigación y tesis doctoral. Si no puedo encontrar una manera de pagar la matrícula, no podre terminar el proyecto, ni mi tesis doctoral. El objetivo de mi investigación es mejorar los estándares de vida precarias de los productores de café (especialmente el de los pequeños productores y recolectores), asegurando una producción de café de alta calidad, así como la continua adhesión a las normas ambientales dentro del Paisaje Cultural Cafetero de Colombia. Si usted se convierte en un colaborador, yo le enviará campo de actualizaciones para que pueda llegar a conocer a la gente que está ayudando, así como la belleza del paisaje natural que les rodea.
