Help Tell The Story Behind Coffee

$2,005 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 32 months

I first met Sarah, the founder of Kula Project, last summer in San Diego. She started to tell me about the work she doing in Rwanda with coffee farmers, and I was immediately intrigued. Kula helps families in East Africa grow and sell coffee as a tool to help them lift their own families out of poverty. Sarah told me that the reason she started Kula was because she met so many mothers and fathers whose greatest wish was to be able to send their children school, and she thought if she could them earn a sustainable income, they would be able to send their children to school each and every morning. That income will come through coffee.

Kula Project has big goals this year, as they help their families take their work from the farm to the global coffee market, and to achieve these goals, they need some help. This March, I will head to Rwanda and Kenya with the Kula Project team. Throughout my two weeks in East Africa, I will help Kula tell the stories of impact they are making in these communities. From a coffee cooperative of woman that all contracted HIV during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide to a clean water project for a coffee-growing community in Kenya, I will help highlight the difference they are making in thousands of lives, and this storytelling will help them to accomplish their 2016 goals. 

Now, I need your help. My goal is to raise $3,000 for Kula Project. These funds will be used to help tell the stories of mothers, fathers, survivors, forgiven perpetrators, and children with incredible dreams for the future. 

I hope you will join me on the incredible journey, and I’m truly grateful for whatever you are contribute, whether that be prayers, funds, or messages of love and encouragement.
