March in Rwanda - New School, New Mills, New Shoes

The Rogers Family Company is serious about making a difference in the lives of coffee farmers and coffee quality in Rwanda - so much so that we have our own development specialist (Anna Russo) and our coffee agronomist (Mario Serracin) living there to ensure Community Aid Programs initiatives are working.

Anna Russo writes a fascinating blog about the lives of coffee farmers in Rwanda.

Kids in Rwanda

Last month she wrote about how we completed work to repair and expand a school so there is more room and more light for children.

Also, through Community Aid, farmers are encouraged to bring their coffee cherries to the wet-mill which improves coffee farming, in exchange for extra payments from the mill.  These changes are making big differences in the lives of coffee farmers there.
