Each year, our supporters donate their time and skills to roast, pack, and sell coffee from the Gitesi washing station. 100% of the sale price funds our grassroots program that places dairy cows directly with smallholder coffee farmers in the Gitesi community. 

The gifting of cows to under-resourced households is a practice known as a Girinka program, and in the case of these smallholder farmers can be an invaluable resource—providing their families milk for nourishment and sale, as well as organic fertiliser for their crops.
