We are helping a local village start a coffee grinding business in the Rwenzori Mountains region of Uganda, which form a border between Uganda and the Congo. The Kisanga group is from one of the hill villages that the students from our school call home. They have identified a need for a local, community-based option for local growers to grind coffee.
The Rwenzoris offer high altitude, fertile soils and plentiful rainfall, perfect growing conditions for fine Arabica coffee. Coffee offers the farmers a stable income that allows them to support their families and develop their homes and small farms.
