It's exciting to be apart of an industry that does so much good for some many people. Especially when they might otherwise go without. Save the Children is helping Deiven, and other young people like him, through the Skills to Succeed for Young Entrepreneurs project, by strengthening their basic business skills and introducing them to entrepreneurial activities that can provide additional sources of income, such as beekeeping for honey production or raising egg-laying chickens to complement their income from coffee. This is critical especially during the months when there is no coffee production, limiting income and putting families at risk of seasonal hunger. Read more about the program here.
“The OCB invites original and inspiring moments that capture the heart of coffee and the people who bring it to the public — the farmers who nurture the green beans, the artisans who roast them to perfection, the baristas who are part of our daily rituals, and the people all over the world who experience the expertise and attention given to each bean along the way,” the OCB says.
