The Relationship Coffee Institute, Sustainable Harvest's non-profit arm, has been selected by Bloomberg Philanthropies to bring its innovative economic Relationship Model of development to low-income rural women based in Rwanda. Over a three-year period, this initiative will improve the livelihoods of 3,500 low-income women farmers through training that creates the basis for more transparent trade, improved quality and higher prices. Let's Talk Coffee: Rwanda is a training event which brings partners together for capacity building and connectivity.
Let's Talk Coffee: Rwanda took place February 18-19 in Kayonza, Rwanda. It brought together female farmers to empower them with new economic opportunities through trainings on the coffee value chain. It was also a joyous celebration of women, connection, relationships, and opportunity.
