Coffee for Change stems from the belief that we should use our natural resources to bring about the change we want to see in our communities. For too long Africa and black nations have been depicted as aid recipients countries. Under developed countries that need financial help from their developed counterparts. The Media continuously showing countries ravaged by war conflicts, Showing malnourished children on television, appealing to good folks to donate.
World financial aids, to this day is a multi -billion dollar industry. Yet, suffering and calamities are still on the rise in the African continent and Afro communities. African countries suffer from lack of clean water and diseases due to poor hygiene. With all the fund raised, we do not seem to be able to end world hunger and other plagues. Where are these funds going? How can we as a collective not put an end to this unfairness?
For too long major organization have used the proceeds of fundraisings to cover their overheads and astronomical executives salaries.
At ConGo OrGano, we believe that not only good folks shouldn’t be felt guilty if they aren’t able to donate their hard earned salaries but also that they shouldn’t go out of their way.
Coffee For Change is about using coffee as a driver of Change and healer. Coffee is the most consummated beverage in developed world after water.
There are many big corporation that source coffee from underdeveloped nations. And although lots of these global corporations have corporate and social responsibility, none have made it their Sole mission statement to use coffee to eradicate world hunger and bring sustainable development. Coffee For Change makes it it’s sole mission donate 50% of proceeds from sales to humanitarian and philanthropic endeavour. By utilizing a product consumed by the whole world, we will help and take care of our own, to change the perception and the narrative of the African and Afro descendant nations.
ConGo OrGano “Coffee For Change” initiative seeks to work in partnership with humanitarian agencies that are doing scalable work and helps those agencies raise funds. Our fundraising is not limited to African and Afro-decent countries but encompasses local and international causes.
