In 2003, your coffee purchases helped us fund the purchase of construction supplies used in building a primary school in the Kinjibi Tribe in Papua New Guinea. The school serves children of workers at the Madan Estate coffee farm. To help educate adults, we helped finance a women’s literacy program also on the Madan Estate.
In partnership with a Pacific Northwest wholesale roaster, we funded construction supplies for the Kinjibi Tribe in Papua New Guinea. These supplies were provided to build a primary school. The school's primary students are the children of workers at the Madan Estate, a longtime Human Bean supplier.
To help educate adults, we financed a women’s literacy program and in collaboration with our customers, we supported a book drive to acquire books for the workers in the community.
Papua New Guinea is a very large developing country in the South Pacific region. Yet it experiences challenges with economic growth and education for adults. Literacy rates are 64% for adult men and 59% for women. These programs are developed to assist these communities by enhancing the quality of life and increase individual confidence.
