Building on its strong legacy of community-based development, Coffee Kids is focusing on youth entrepreneurship in its first year of renewed activities. Coffee Kids is partnering with coffee communities in Colombia, the Trifinio Region of Central America (Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador border region) and Tanzania to launch our new programs, which build on collaborative relationships already established by Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung North America. We are leveraging these relationships and responding to an expressed need by the young farmers in these communities to help them overcome the various barriers to success that they face. By training and mentoring young coffee farmers, Coffee Kids is fostering the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit that exists in these communities. By investing financially in these communities Coffee Kids and our supporters are contributing to building coffee communities where young women and men can create economically viable options for staying involved in coffee.
