We do coffee differently — and it starts with impact. 100% of the profits from every bag of coffee you purchase goes to the Gorongosa Project. It collaborates with local stakeholders (including our very own farmers) on initiatives that benefit Gorongosa’s communities, ecosystem, and the local economy. Here’s a look at the impact you supported in March.
One way the Gorongosa Project supports the local economy is by providing resources, training, and jobs in sustainable industries like coffee. In March, the Sustainable Development Department hosted a training session for new coffee farmers. They learned about the production chain, new agricultural technologies, and the post-harvest process. For many, it was their first chance to taste coffee!
This year’s theme for International Women’s Day was “Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow.” To mark the day, the Men for Equality Program participated in activities and discussions that focused on empowering girls and women, preventing harassment, and raising awareness of the value women bring to the community.
March also marked International Day of the Forest. The Park hosted local events to educate communities about the important role forests play and why they need to be protected. The day’s events included a talk by Gorongosa District Administrator Pedro Mussengue, as well as lectures, songs and dances, and plays — all with themes that illustrated the importance of forests for communities and the environment.
