Women in Coffee?
Women in Coffee is Caffè Vergnano’s social responsibility project. Launched in 2018 in collaboration with the International Women Coffee Alliance to sustain small communities of female coffee producers, the project is in constant evolution and aims at supporting projects that promote female empowerment, inclusion, and respect.
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S COFFEE ALLIANCE
Empowering female coffee producers
Every year, together with the ICWA – the International Coffee Women Alliance – we select a concrete project to emphasize the role of women in coffee plantations. In 2019 we launched our first fundraising campaign and launched a micro coffee brewery in Valle Hondo, Santo Domingo, in a community of 20 female coffee producers. 2020 did not stop us and we are now ready to start with a new goal: building a library for the villagers of Cual Bicicleta, in Marcala, Honduras. We are thrilled to help the community with a project that brings together culture and sharing.
A training project to teach diversity and empathy
In 2020 we partnered up with Funtasia Digital, a training project for teachers and students in Italian public schools. The goal? To learn new ways of building social and emotional well-being and nurturing positive relationships, with a special focus on diversity and empathy between boys and girls.
