Rwandan Coffee

Rwanda

A whirlwind of horror swept through Rwanda. As destructive as any natural disaster, the genocide pitted brother against brother, killing over one million people in 100 days. Widows, orphans, and families were left to pick up the pieces of their broken lives. Yet this same land that has seen so much hatred now bears witness to amazing stories of reconciliation and forgiveness. WAR, Int’l’s partners enter into this process of restoration by paying Rwandan coffee farmers a fair wage, approximately 4.5 times more than other coffee companies. In addition, a portion of the profits fund microloans for at-risk women, providing stability in the midst of turmoil and empowering them to invest in their families and communities. Now, instead of hatred, a spirit of grace, forgiveness, and redemption is sweeping through Rwanda.
