This coffee is part of the Rebuild Women’s Hope program, which was established in 2013 by Marcelline Budza. The program’s vision is “to place women at the center of the integral development of her community” and that “building the hope of women is building the hope of the entire nation.”
Located along the shores of Idjwi, a large remote island in the middle of Lake Kivu in eastern Congo, the cooperative invests in the lives of members—offering interest free loans, investing in a local health clinic on the island, and offering incentive programs.
