Help Us Improve Education in a Honduran Coffee Farming VillageNovember 12, 2013 (Published: November 12, 2013)
In the remote coffee-growing community of El Socorro, Honduras, fewer than 5 percent of children attend school beyond fifth grade. Together, we can change that.
For the past three years, Crimson Cup has been working to improve coffee quality and quality of life for the farmers and their families. Through our partnership, the farmers are seeing that quality coffee can lift their village out of poverty.
Educating the next generation of coffee growers is critical to transforming this community. But this is almost impossible as long as a single teacher works with 74 children in a one-room school.
We Need Your Help!
As you reflect on your many gifts this holiday season, we invite you to share the gift of education with the children of El Socorro.
Our crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo seeks $4,800 to hire a second, English-speaking teacher at the school for the next two years.
Every dollar you give puts them closer to their hope of a second teacher.
Spread the Word
Share this campaign to everyone you know and use the hashtag #F2FGive. For every hashtag, we will donate $1 to this cause (up to $1500). Sharing is supporting the cause!
Buy the Coffee
We are proud to roast the coffee of the 21 farmer El Socorro co-op, paying a premium to support the farmers and their families. You can support the El Socorro community by ordering this coffee online anytime.
Thanks for your help!
