Support Moms in Co-ops
We want to acknowledge and celebrate the mothers in farming communities that are contributing to their families' coffee, cacao or tea production, while also running their households — cooking, cleaning, and tending to the children, animals, and gardens. It's a lot of work, and often requires getting up as early as 4 a.m. and being the last to go to sleep. We are continually inspired by these women and all that they do.
Your support of fairly traded products means supporting moms in co-ops around the world. Thank you!
Uganda Stove Project
In the spring of 2014, we raised $4,720 to help Ugandan women build 118 energy-efficient stoves in their communities, surpassing our goal of 100 stoves!
These new stoves make a remarkable difference in the lives of mothers and families. They reduce the amount of firewood necessary to cook by 50%, meaning a substantial savings in money, labor and time. These stoves can cook more dishes at once, and faster, meaning less time in the kitchen. And, they prove a warm, smoke-free environment for families to spend time together in.
