We are sad to see Coffee Kids, after 26 years of working to improve the lives and livelihoods of coffee farming families, announcing it is suspending programming at the end of this year.


This is what you can read on their website:

Dear Coffee Kids Friends and Supporters:

For 26 years we have partnered with coffee-growing communities to improve the lives and livelihoods of coffee-farming families. We have been dedicated to supporting communities as they build their own vision of healthy, resilient communities.

After serious deliberation, the Coffee Kids Board has decided to suspend programming, effective December 31, 2014. We will then search for an appropriate organization with which to merge. Understanding the time-sensitive nature of the situation, the deadline for this merger will be the end of the first quarter of 2015.

The Board of Directors and staff are completely committed to the mission of Coffee Kids and are thus hopeful that another organization will take on our work. We believe that supporting coffee communities as they solve their own most pressing social problems is the best way to build a more resilient coffee supply chain.

In the coming weeks, we will reach out to our donors and supporters. If you would like to speak with someone about this decision you may contact Board President Mike Ebert. If you would like to know how to continue supporting coffee-farming families, you may contact Executive Director Rebecca Singer .


Mike Ebert

We want to thank Coffee Kids for their tireless efforts and hard work in the Coffee Industry, supporting Coffee Farming Communities around the world. We hope a new partner will be found to take over the ideology of Coffee Kids to continue this great cause. Good luck to all.
