Honduras Coffee Kids is produced by 33 young coffee producers— 6 women and 27 men, ages 15 through 39—from the Uniocafe Youth Committee who are participating in the Coffee Kids program.
Coffee Kids has been working with farmer associations in the Trifino region of Central America—the shared border of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. The goal of Coffee Kids is to awaken the entrepreneurial spirit in young farmers, to encourage them to believe in themselves and to help ensure better livelihoods for them and their families.
Coffee Kids, through its rural business workshops, provides agronomy and quality-control training, business mentoring and access to financing. Globally—in Trifinio, Colombia, and Tanzania—it now includes more than 250 young people. Coffee Kids believes that if we can support the creativity, innovation, and passion of these young people, they'll have the capacity to adapt to the challenges ahead.
