Another very important attribute of our company which is extremely close to our
hearts is the charity work. The charity organization currently has two projects
The first project addresses women's menstrual health. Most women especially
those who come from poor family backgrounds are unable to buy normal pads
every month. The project aims to educate women about their menstruation cycle
and promote best practices to improve their health and wellbeing. We also provide
these women with health kits which include reusable pads that can last many years
and therefore are more affordable than normal period pads.
The second project aims to help poor communities and people in villages who are
unable to afford basic needs. We go to the villages and look for people in need such as the elderly, orphans and widows. Once we have them on list; we go back to
provide them with some of basic needs including rice, cooking oil, soap, clothes
and medicine for those who they are sick.
The Charity Organization is a result of many years of hard work. It is only
beginning of many more projects to come. It is truly a blessing to have the
opportunity work with and give back to our community. If visitors wish, they can
choose to visit these communities and also volunteer to help out with this
organization.Eastern Africa is known as the historical home of the coffee plant, and the region continues to be a major global supplier.

Tanzania Coffee History Having made its way to Tanzania from its native Ethiopia more than 400 years ago, the coffee plant has long been a valuable trade crop in the country. The arabica variety dominated under German colonization, leading to its widespread naturalization today. However, the robusta species still accounts for about 30 percent of Tanzania’s total produce. Kilimanaro's arabica beans are particularly notable for their distinctively rich flavor, a product of high elevation and fertile land. Look for opportunities to purchase local produce. Some smaller sellers will also give you the chance to practice your manual bean-grinding skills too.
