As our first coffee is produced in Ethiopia, we wanted to find a way we can give back to the family's that work hard to produce amazing coffee. After researching the different charities that operate in Ethiopia, we came across the Girls Gotta Run Foundation. Immediately we knew this was something we really believed in, so we decided to dedicate 10% of all profits made from our coffee to hopefully support a girl through 1 year of their program.
"GGRF is the only non-profit organization in Ethiopia using the national sport of running as an innovative approach to creating safe spaces, ending child marriage and expanding access to secondary school for vulnerable girls. GGRF invests in girls and their families to create long-term paths for self-reliance and financial resiliency." - Girl Gotta Run Foundation
Below is a video from the Euro News Learning World Special Report on the Girls Gotta Run Foundation Program in Sodo, Ethiopia to learn more about how GGRF is making a difference in the lives of Ethiopian girls today.
To sponsor one girl through a year at the Girls Gotta Run Foundation costs £600 so our target to hit this is to sell 900 bags of coffee. Every purchase you make, we'll be donating 10% of the coffees gross profit. To find out more about where the money goes check out their donation page.
