Muungano Cooperative

Literacy Training

The Muungano cooperative maintains ongoing programs to support and educate its members. In 2021, a survey was conducted showing that nearly 70% of the cooperative’s members could not read or write. This Seeds grant funded a literacy campaign for 485 female and young coffee farmers. Basic literacy will increase the impact of specific quality training initiatives by the coop and is also valuable in daily life. This project will be highly impactful for farmer members and their communities.
