The Rafiki Widows Program proudly partners with the women coffee farmers of Friends of Mothers Initiative Ltd. to bring you rich, full-bodied Ugandan coffee. Friends of Mothers Initiative is a fair-trade certified and organic coffee producer committed to empowering African women.
Growing coffee beans on the slopes of Mt. Eglon, Uganda since 2015, this group of fifty women hand-pick ripe coffee cherries, ensuring that each cup is flavorful and bold—with notes of brown sugar, cocoa, and raisin. These inspirational women are paving the way for empowered female coffee growers and securing a brighter future for themselves and their children.
Rafiki is pleased to partner with the Friends of Mothers Initiative Ltd. to support the efforts of industrious African women. A portion of the proceeds from the Uganda coffee goes to Rafiki’s Widows Program. When you buy our coffee, you are supporting women farmers in Uganda and widows across the African continent.
