“To rebuild the spirit of a women is to rebuild the spirit of a country”
Women Rebuilding Hope based in Bakavu, Domenic Republic Congo.
Women Rebuilding Hope, a nonprofit founded in 2013 and led by a 28-year-old Congolese women named Marcelline Budza who heads up a project to help rebuild hope and empower women in coffee.
This is a coffee focused development, where hundreds of female coffee farmers are working to produce top-quality coffee for premium market channels. In doing so, they are helping define social change in a part of the world where simply existing as a women has been most difficult, and sexual violence towards women is widespread.
In the DRC, a women has been traditionally considered less valuable than a man; merely an instrument of sexual satisfaction or a producer of children, she is considered incapable of contributing to her family and community’s need through dignified work, Budza recently said in a conversation “WRH was born out of the desire to combat this idea, through uniting a group of coffee producing women who are fighting against inequality in women’s rights and re-establishing the value of a women’s work.”
By purchasing this coffee you are helping to stop sexual violence towards women in DRC.
