We are excited to introduce you to the women of the Hingakawa Women’s Co-op.  Hingakawa means “Let’s Grow Coffee” and this is just part of what the women of this cooperative do.  After being witness and victim to part of Rwanda’s 1994 genocide, the women came together, setting aside their ethnic differences and focusing on healing their communities.  Through their leadership, courage and bravery they reclaimed their lives.  The Hingakawa is one of two cooperatives (the other is the Dakundakawa) that forms the Abakundakawa Coffee Cooperative, first established in 2004 and recognized as the first Women’s Only Farmer Association of its kind in Rwanda. 

The cooperative is located in the northern mountainous region of the district of Gakenke, and is perched at an altitude of 1700-1900 meters, flanked by five distinct growing zones.

 

NOTE: If you are ordering 5 lbs or more and would like it bagged in a single 5 lb bag, please leave a note during checkout and we will make it happen!
