EJOHEZA mean A BEAUTIFUL TOMORROW FROM KOPAKAMA

Empowering women within the household communities many of these women are widows or orphans of the 1994 genocide and have needed to provide a living for their families alone.

In 2008 300 of these women started a women’s group with the idea of working in friendship and solidarity to rehabilitate their coffee fields.

Their coffee is harvested and marketed by Misozi coffee separately and is fully traceable .In 2009 they decided to use the coffee premium to purchase a communal land and coffee trees .We called it EJO HEZA,A Beautiful Tomorrow  Because with this land they believe in a brighter Future .Women who did not yet own their land have been able to participate and become a members.EJO HEZA is developing into a model plot to trial and to demonstrate best practice coffee farming to all at KOPAKAMA .
