2021/2022 Cocagi Project Update
New Land, Coffee Nursery and Training for the community of Cocagi, Rwanda.
This financial year we are again proud to be supporting the female farming community of Cocagi, Rwanda. This year we have funded the purchase of an additional 2 hectares of land (taking their total land holding to 8 hectares that we have been able to fund for this community), as well as a coffee nursery, training, and additional seedlings to diversify their income.
This year, we are also funding the appointment of new Agronomist Patricia to help support the female farmers and teach them sustainable practices in order to get a better yield and help them mitigate their risk against things like climate change. St Remio will also fund the preparation of the land through the purchase of fertilisers and compost, as well as fund a plant nursery to house all the coffee seedlings for the new land.
We will also continue to fund the ongoing training for the female farming community and teach them the importance of intercropping to stop land erosion, alongside plant diversification which acts as both additional income and supports the health of the coffee plantation itself.
As we have supported Cocagi for 3 years, this will also be the year that we see the first harvest from the first round of coffee seedlings we funded for the community back in 2019! An exciting milestone for us and the community.
You can follow the progress throughout the year on our social channels to see how your purchase is helping us make a difference to this community. After all we are: One Bean. One Cup. One Community.
Thank you for your support in allowing us to empower this community. Your purchase is making a real difference!
