16 Mar2017 Thank you to all our customers!
Thank you to all our customers for their great support this Fairtrade Fortnight!
For the past eight years of Insomnia’s involvement in Fairtrade Fortnight we’ve contributed with five cents from each cup sold towards this great cause. We have contributed a total of €92,179 for our various Fairtrade Community Projects.
The €14,305 raised this year will go directly to the ACPC Pichanaki Coffee Cooperative (CAC PICHANAKI ACPC), in Peru, our latest Fairtrade Community Project.
This year’s project will contribute to the construction of a Youth Centre for young members and the children of members and workers involved in production of Fairtrade certified coffee in Peru. ACPC Pichanaki Agrarian Coffee Cooperative is an organisation of 302 coffee producers and as part of its effort the cooperative believes that is essential to involve its young members and the children of its members, encouraging their commitment to the organisation. This new Youth Centre will be very important for the community allowing the following activities:
- Facilitate the training of young coffee growers in the Junin region, with a view to including youth in the coffee business;
- Develop events, courses in technical training and business management for young members of the coffee organisations;
- Develop cultural events for youth.
Choose Fairtrade and change the world on your coffee break!
