“Making women’s coffee work count” – This is what inspired Rugori - Women’s Crown - Gasharu Coffee, a fully washed experimental microlot that is solely produced and processed by women.
Urugori “women’s crown” is a crown that women in Rwanda are given after giving their first birth as a symbol of motherhood. It is a symbol of respect and recognition of their contribution to society. Considering that more than 70% of Gasharu Coffee employees are women, this coffee is meant to continue recognising women’s contribution to the coffee community and creating a transparent framework that benefits them with additional proceedings resulting from their work.
This is not only fair to them. It is also a great contribution to their households and the environment as a whole. It has already been evidenced that by adding more money into the hands of women, communities eradicate malnutrition and illiteracy. It also catalyzes girls’ education. All of these are critical for women empowerment.
