Coffee Kids, a popular charity that was forced to close in 2014 after assisting 200,000 coffee-farming families for 27 years is back in business.
Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung North America, a private foundation that assists smallholders in 14 countries, has agreed to partner with Coffee Kids, according to managing director Jens Sorgenfrei. He praised the group for fostering “creativity and entrepreneurial spirit that will empower their communities.”
Coffee Kids co-founder Dean Cycon said, “I am so excited to see it continue. Our innovative people-centered approach set a gold standard in coffee community-based work that has inspired many others.”
Activities will resume shortly said Cycon. Everything changes, often for the better, he said. The partnership will enable Coffee Kids to remain committed to its original mission. He said the group will continue to rely on donor support to fund the program.
