Coffee Kids has been working with farmer associations in the Trifino region of Central America — the shared border of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
Its goal is to awaken the entrepreneurial spirit in young farmers, to encourage them to believe in themselves and to help ensure better livelihoods for them and their families.
Since 2007, UNIOCAFE has invested in its producer network by providing training, financing, and access to coffee buyers. In 2016, UNIOCAFE expanded its programs to focus on empowering youth, promoting gender equity and addressing climate change. Currently, UNIOCAFE provides young producers with best-practices training in coffee cultivation, cupping and coffee quality, as well as processing and preparation for export. At the same time, the youth are learning how to develop strong organizational and business skills.
