The Songwa Estates partners, La Marzocco, Mahlkönig and Probat, leading coffee equipment manufacturers based in Europe, announce its 2019 investments for Hands for Songwa.

Following the installation of wells in 2017 and 2018, proceeds from Hands for Songwa (a percentage of the sale of products manufactured by the partners) will be donated this year towards an additional well to ensure that all members of the community residing near the Songwa coffee farm have access to clean water. This year, the project will also cover the demolition and reconstruction of a primary school building in a nearby village, the fourth school building sponsored by the partners since 2012.

Finally, in the second half of the year, in collaboration with local schools and authorities, the partners will organize a campaign to clean the river running near the farm.

Why Hands for Songwa?  To accomplish more.  Like coffee, the dedicated and passionate people who work the farm are a precious resource. For this reason, the partners carefully select projects that aim to improve and support the farm and its immediate community.
