Grow Together


We believe in Yemen and its people. Our goal is to work with Yemeni farmers to empower them to overcome market barriers, and to develop greater infrastructure for their farms. To do this we are working hands on with the farmers on teaching them best agricultural practices such as pruning, red cherry picking as well as building the first drying beds in Yemen. This will greatly improve the quality and production of their coffee trees. These programs will focus especially on women since they make up 75% of the coffee farmers in Yemen.
