2021 Seeds Fund Recipient

2021 Seeds Fund Recipient

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.

  • Seeds Program

    Counter Culture Coffee collects $0.01 from every pound of coffee sold to fund our Seeds program. Annually, $1 per pound of our winter coffee blend, Iridescent, goes to further increase our contribution. Seeds offers financial grants to producers and producer organizations we work with to implement sustainability projects they identify as beneficial. To date, we’ve allocated over $280,000 to Seeds projects.
