Organic Congo Coffee Project
Details

The Congo Coffee Project supports the growth and healing of the war-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo.

For every bag of coffee sold, Equal Exchange will donate $2 ($1 wholesale) to the Panzi Foundation, which supports the work of the Panzi Hospital and educates the public about issues facing the D.R. Congo.

Women at the Panzi Hospital in the D.R. Congo

Since 1999, the Panzi Hospital has treated tens of thousands of women who are survivors of epidemic sexual violence or are in need of reproductive and maternal care. Beyond the medical, their work includes essential counseling, skill training, literacy education, and daycare. Thanks to you, Equal Exchange has donated $39,000 to the Panzi Foundation so far.

Our producer partner for this coffee is SOPACDI, a multi-ethnic and multi-lingual co-op in the D.R. Congo that is working to rebuild the local economy, empower women, and unite diverse groups through coffee production.
