Building schools and futures
The farmers who grow coffee around the world are an essential part of our business – we couldn’t keep inspiring the world to love great coffee without them! However, we know that many coffee-growing communities are in remote rural areas in some of the world’s poorest countries, and children in these communities often have little or no access to education.
The mission of the Costa Foundation is to fund schools and school projects in coffee-growing communities which provide the opportunity to access a safe, quality education. The charity does this by:
Building new schools or extending existing ones
Investing in water supplies and providing electricity
Furnishing the new buildings
Providing computers and other essential technology
Building toilets and teacher accommodation
Promoting gender equality
Developing land for students to grow crops.
