Sample delicious coffee made from Equal Exchange’s Fair Trade and Organic Congo Coffee. The Congo Coffee Project supports growth and healing in the war-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Equal Exchange’s producer partner for this coffee is SOPACDI, a multi-ethnic and multi-lingual co-op in the D.R. Congo that is working to rebuild the local economy, empower women, and unite diverse groups through coffee production.
Equal Exchange donates $1 to the Panzi Foundation for every bag of coffee purchased at Harvest Market. Since 1999, the Panzi Hospital has treated tens of thousands of women who are survivors of epidemic sexual violence or are in need of reproductive and maternal care. Beyond the medical, their work includes essential counseling, skill training, literacy education, and daycare. Thanks to you, Equal Exchange has donated over $60,000 to the Panzi Foundation so far!
In uniting with SOPACDI and the Panzi Foundation, the Congo Coffee Project has a two-fold impact: by addressing economic instability directly by working with a cooperative that is restoring the local economy from the ground up, and by aiding survivors of systematic violence and long term unrest. These combined efforts support the healing needed to move forward and the foundation for a better future.
