Women consistently face gender inequality within the coffee industry. We're here to change that. Here's how.
Purchasing organic coffee from our farmers at fair prices.
By purchasing at fair trade prices, women are paid over 2 dollars more per kilogram of coffee. Ultimately, this gives them financial power in their coffee business and allows them to pay their childrens school fees, buy more nutritious food for their families, and secure better healthcare.

Supporting the entrepreneurial pursuits of our women.
We offer training on income generating activities that improve the lives of women and families in our community. Small enterprises, such as soap-making and coffee briquettes,
provide extra income and foster leadership qualities among the women. Our farmers also take lead as tour guides on our coffee tours. These initiatives instill confidence in the local women and confront patriarchal ideas about gender norms.
And, of course, our coffee farmers help us to produce the finest organic coffee in Uganda.

The Annual Farmers Marathon
Every year, Kyaffe Farmers Coffee hosts a Farmers Marathon in our local villages. It is a grassroots event that is meant to alleviate hunger in our community by fundraising a small amount of money for the organization, engaging with farmers about agricultural services, giving out farming prices to the winners, and bringing everyone together for a fun event.
This year, we were able to supply school supplies to the children that participated in the race. We also gifted fertilizer sprayers to our three fastest runners.
The race started in Kabira Village and went through Bombo and Nyondo village as well.
“Quality coffee that gives me a great start to my day. Plus, I love that it supports local farmers and empowers women.”
