HELP US TO PUT THE POWER OF PARTICIPATORY RADIO INTO THE HANDS OF MILLIONS OF SMALLHOLDER COFFEE FARMERS IN LATIN AMERICA!
Latin America produces a staggering 60% of the world’s coffee. But farmers in the region are under increasing pressure from fluctuating market prices, climate change, crop diseases and inflation, putting the global supply of coffee at risk. Poor connectivity, low levels of literacy and gender inequality hinder access to essential information and services, especially for women.
Since 2022, our innovative Farmers’ Voice Radio Academy has supported 31 organisations across Africa and Asia to learn skills and access resources to launch their own radio programmes, tailored to the needs of the communities they serve. We invite you to support our campaign to take the Academy to Latin America and help put the power of participatory radio into the hands of millions of coffee producers in that region.
Any funds you can donate or help us raise will make a difference.
£300 could cover the cost of one Farmers’ Voice Radio Academy session for five organisations
£500 will help develop technical materials for crops and specific themes
£1,500 is the cost of training one organisation through the duration of an Academy
£3,000 provides a small start-up grant for an Academy graduate
Here are some ideas for how YOUR business could support our campaign:
Spotlight your Latin American origins by donating a % of sales or fixed amount per volume
Host a celebratory event in your café or roastery and invite your customers along
Include a donation on till-point opportunity for your customers
Spread the word and ask your clients or coffee industry peers to support us
Share materials to support the campaign amongst your suppliers and customers
