rural business workshops

Coffee Kids creates economic opportunities for young farmers who want to continue farming coffee in their communities. Our Rural Business Workshops provide business skills, funding, and mentoring to empower them to turn coffee farming into a business that provides a good life for their families. With these tools, not only are young farmers optimizing their farms, they are starting side businesses that provide steady, year-round incomes.

Partners

The Tanzania Coffee Farmer Alliance (TCFA) is a farmer-owned organization based on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Moshi, the coffee capital of Tanzania. The organization represents about 10,000 smallholder coffee farmers and provides essential services such as market information, access to financial services, and technical assistance to improve the quality and quantity of their coffee harvest.

The Need

Youth in the Kilimanjaro region see potential in agribusiness and are exploring opportunities to make a living in coffee farming, instead of migrating from farms to cities. These youth believe that they will need to change how they farm to be successful.
