Funding Women's Healthcare in Kenya
A portion of all proceeds of this coffee goes to the funding of a healthcare program in Kenya called Treatment, Research, and Expert Education (TREE). A primary focal point of TREE is the treatment of women's healthcare in Kenya, specifically addressing cervical cancer through mobile detection clinics within the coffee growing community that produces this beautiful offering. Over 270,000 women per year in Sub-Saharan Africa are diagnosed with cervical cancer, with over 80% of deaths associated with the cancer occurring in resource-limited settings.
Strong coffee farming families are responsible for this extraordinary Kenya coffee we’re proud to offer. Dollar for dollar, there’s no better way for us to invest in the health and security of these families than by helping to address women’s health.
