This fundraiser is making a difference for women in the rural communities of Third World countries. In these areas of lower cultural living standards, many women are not only isolated, but mistreated physically and emotionally. With little resources, the coffee family prefers to invest available resources in educating the sons. The daughter stays home, devoting herself to chores around the house and watching over the farm. They usually marry between 12 and 16 years old. Until now, women have only been allowed to participate in the domestic work of the home. From the desire to change this situation, the Cafe Femenino Project was born.
The Cafe Femenino Project involves women coffee growers. With the Organic and the Fair Trade premiums they receive from the sales of their coffee beans, they will be able to promote the organization of female coffee growers and their integration into social political, and occupational organizations. The additional funds will provide extra income that goes directly to the women producers. The hope is that by changing the roles of women the quality of life in these communities will improve and help build a sustainable economic system.
