The Hands of Hope Project was initiated by our green coffee suppliers sister company, Volkapi to help and support children; many of them orphans, in a number of foster homes. Our goal is to supplement the institutions incomes, helping them improve their facilities and to supplement their annual operating budgets creating a better future for the children.
The Hands of Hope Project provides a percentage of the proceeds from selected green coffee sales to two specific foster homes. One located in a mountain village of Takengon Aceh, Kasih Sayang. The other is in Yayasan Sungai Air Hidup, located in the inner city of Medan, North Sumatra’s coffee export hub. The Kasih Sayang foster home helped many of the children who lost their parenst in the devastating Boxing Day tsunami.
The support provided means the children’s meals more nutritional with the addition of fresh fruit and vegetables, funding has been provide for classroom construction. Other specific items have been sports and music equipment. The children have been able to grow their own produce in specially built greenhouses. Hands of Hope is fully supported by us through sales of our HOH Lake Tawar and HOH Blue Batak with the children's individual and colourful signatures.
