Our Story - Why We Care
Here at Kingdom Coffee we care. It's our belief that we have a responsibility to support the planet and its people. We work with charities including Toybox, Tearfund and Latin Link and aim to continue to fund and support work to help to improve more lives in coffee growing communities around the world.
Locally we sponsor many other organisations including the Street Pastors, The Footsteps Foundation, an intensive physiotherapy for disabled children, CIRDIC and Providence, helping homeless and disadvantaged, and the Younger People With Dementia charity in Wokingham - a brilliant charity founded to support those with young onset dementia, their family and carers.
Kingdom Coffee continue to support Tearfund in their work to end poverty in over 50 of the world’s countries including helping to set up new groups through the Kale Heywet Church in Ethiopia. Our Café Tesfa (Hope) coffee raises much needed funds - every case of Fairtrade Caffe Tesfa sold makes two investments in the lives of others.
In addition to supporting Fairtrade – better prices, decent working condition, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world - Kingdom Coffee donates £3.00 to Tearfund for every case of Caffe Tesfa purchased.
Together with Toybox, Kingdom Coffee is helping vulnerable children who live on the periphery of society within coffee growing regions. We’ve teamed up with Toybox to deliver our most ambitious project yet, supporting just over 100 children in Guatemala with food and outreach worker support in an area that has been described as “one of the worst places in the world to be a child” (Telegraph).
With TOYBOX we funded the building of classrooms in two church related projects within the city of Cochabamba. The projects help protect vulnerable children from the dangers of life on the streets
Kingdom Coffee is delighted to continue its decade-long partnership with Latin Link, supporting their work through projects in Guatemala, Colombia and Costa Rica, bringing hope to communities living in poverty. During that time, Kingdom Coffee has donated over £19,000 from matching donations made at the Christian Resources Exhibition and from sales of their Pura Vida coffee.
This money has supported projects in Guatemala, and most recently Colombia and Costa Rica. Vive Foundation in Colombia works to transform the lives of thousands of children affected by conflict and poverty, as they facilitate children’s clubs.
