THE STORY:

Passionate about making a difference, our team runs to support all people in coffee.


This run is supporting the Java Jog at SCAA


 Since  2013, this popular SCAA event has brought together hundreds of coffee  aficionados, runners, walkers and friends to raise more than $75,000 in  support of coffee women in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Ethiopia  through local organizations on the ground. Women are the backbone of the global coffee sector, playing critical  roles related to coffee quality and wellbeing of the farm and family.  However, their efforts go frequently unrecognized, undervalued and  underpaid.  The impact of both larger and smaller JavaJog grants has been  tremendous - from support of the International Women’s Coffee Alliance  in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), who directly supported the  Tuungane Cooperative to help construct their first coffee washing  station in 2014, to a grant to Girls Gotta Run in Ethiopia, which  provided Athletic Sponsorships for girls and micro-business grants to  each of their households - directly impacting nearly 150 family members  in the Wolita coffee-growing regions of Ethiopia. JavaJog has also  supported cervical cancer screenings and health education for women in  Sidama, Ethiopia through Grounds for Health, and business training for  women in the DRC through the Eastern Congo Initiative.  This year, JavaJog funds will go to worthy initiatives to support  women in coffee producing communities around the world who will be  selected through an independent grant process as in prior years. The  awareness of the JavaJog grants has grown, we anticipate receiving an  even more diverse array of innovative project proposals to support women  in coffee around the world.
