We’re proud to announce our partnership with So They Can, a not for profit organisation committed to empowering children living in poverty through education in Kenya and Tanzania.
In cooperation with The Generations Foundation, we will be supporting a class of students (40 children) at Kibowen Komen Primary school to improve their learning conditions, as well as access to daily school meals and safe drinking water.
Kibowen Komen Primary School is based in Nakuru, Kenya - a school in close proximity to coffee growing regions where we source our coffees.
Our annual contribution of $25,000 AUD aids in So They Can’s mission of changing the future of education for children living in poverty. We’re incredibly proud to partner with such a great organisation creating educational opportunities and empowerment programs that support our friends and colleagues in coffee growing countries.
So They Can’s vision is to empower teachers, students and families through education. Shockingly, UNESCO estimates that around 260 million children and youth globally are missing out on school.
So They Can works with communities, governments and partners to change that statistic by removing barriers to education.
So They Can’s local teams in Africa collaborate with the communities to develop a shared plan with a viable exit strategy. Together, they build local capabilities with sustainable funding models, underpinned by healthcare initiatives, improved sanitation, viable farming solutions, and empowerment programs. All with education at the heart.
