Charity fund to assist students in Kenya with school fees.
Our partners in Kenya work with the Kiawamururu Coffee cooperative in the Nyeri County. There are 960 producers associated with the cooperative, a significant portion of which have children in need of schooling. Education is not free in Kenya, and children often drop out of school due to lack of funds. Producers have voiced the economic problems they are facing, and sending their children to school is one of the leading struggles. The Kiawamururu scholarship fund was created by the Factory to assist the families. Mercanta would like to help fund 10-18 students this year, and provide them with the opportunity to have an education. In both the UK and EU warehouses, there are a collection of Kenyan coffees for sale, and with each sale, 50p will be donated per kilogram to the Kiawamururu Fund. 2023 update: We have successfully funded 12 students, raising $1,000.Find Out More
