BENEFITING: Building New Hope
*Raise what it takes to import this coffee that puts people above profits: $7500 for our final 2017 fair trade coffee payments to El Porvenir, Nicaragua #MyPorvenir
*Keep this community on their land so they don't need to leave in search of jobs
*Help these organic farmers preserve not only their livelihood but 2000 acres of native tropical forest habitat
*Give back as coffee drinkers to those choosing to grow coffee sustainably
What We Do:
Building New Hope has partnered with the worker-owned organic coffee cooperative El Porvenir (The Future) in Nicaragua since 2002.
*We pay well above the fair trade price
*We give back directly to the community through education grants
*We defray the costs of bird-friendly certification for the farm (highest level of shade-grown and environmentally friendly coffee)
*We provide grants to plant new coffee trees
*We provide grants for infrastructure projectst, such as to repair water tanks (there is no running water - or electricity- in the community)
The income from earning the higher fair trade price for organic coffee allows the farmers to stay on their land. If you as a coffee drinker buy shade-grown and bird-friendly coffee you choose preserving tropical forest habitat over deforestation and keep the water and the soil pesticide and herbicide free.
Help raise what it takes to import this coffee that puts people above profits.
We need to raise $3 per pound of green and we want to import 5,000 pounds so do your part for the Green Coffee Harvest Campaign!
