Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

Mexico has the greatest factors to harvest specialty coffee but the industry and market have kept the producers in oblivion as they benefit the most from the actual situation. Local Coffee (Café Local) is fighting against the status quo to generate the knowledge on how to create specialty coffee, negotiate directly with buyers and find market to place truly fair trade products. 

We need people interested in social development for rural and marginalized communities in Oaxaca, Chiapas, Veracruz and Guerrero which are the top states with poverty. We want to revert and create opportunities for these families to work around their actual status in order to promote sustainable community development through their work, knowledge, devotion and passion to the earth and their crops.

Measuring impact, creating micro financing plans, creating new ways to increase impact or money flow towards the communities, partnering with foundations, organizations, corporations, NGO, and other civil associations will allow us to finish this unjust situation.

DELIVERABLES

Through the measuring of impact and return of money towards the communities we will be able to determine if we are truly generating a change and a sustainable one that will promote other participants to sum their efforts towards development in rural areas.

You will help develop an Impact Measurement Framework that will work with three types of levels and aiming to take all producers towards the top one in which they are able to find a direct market to their work and harvest.
