Alleviating poverty and improving the livelihood of smallholder coffee farmers.
“A storm had destroyed my drying bed. The Beyond Trade team saved my family from losing our harvest, even my farm, by rebuilding it strong than before.”
William Becerra - Huila, Colombia

We can't control the weather, and in situations like this, William would have lost all of his hard work overnight. It only took $700 but for him, the impact was life changing. Losing his crop means no food for the next six months, and no way to reinvest in his farm for future crops. William and his family often live paycheck to paycheck, and without help from Beyond Trade, they would have struggled for years to regain financial stability.

What we've learned:
It doesn't take much to impact someone's life. Small amounts can go a long way.

Ways to support

Supporting farmers and their local school

As part of our initial activities for 2023, we will be undertaking two projects: the 2023 Agricultural Training Program and improvements to the Campo Bello School. These projects have a dual mission of reducing poverty and improving the livelihoods of 500 smallholder farmers, their families, and communities.
