Information

Rwanda Sake Farm provide work mainly to women and the youth in the Ngoma District, Sake sector, Rwanda. The salaries they receive from the plantation and washing station help to improve quality of life and reduce poverty in the rural Ngoma District area.

Sake Farm are a member of the International Women Coffee Alliance. IWCA's mission is to empower, encourage and recognise the participation of women in all aspects of the coffee industry. In particular they focus on the international coffee community, helping women to achieve sustainable and meaningful lives. 

After 1994, when everything was destroyed by the genocide against the Tutsi, Sake Farm became a source of coffee income, making people working together for a better life and mutual understanding for building reconciliation.

Since 1999 our supplier has worked together with farmers to rehabilitate the coffee farms destroyed in 1994 and built a coffee washing station at Sake Farm in 2003. 

Now their focus is to working on increasing quality and quantity of coffee - specifically for the speciality coffee market.
