JJ Bean & imagine1day funding education, clean water in two Ethiopian communities

This summer JJ Bean Coffee Roasters raised over $70,000 with imagine1day to build a kindergarten in Haro Dumal, Ethiopia.

Thanks to the generosity of customers and other partners, the original $37,000 fundraising goal was almost doubled and the original project vision has been expanded to include construction of another school and bringing clean water to Tsigeba with Run For Water.

imagine1day joined Ethiopia’s commitment to see every Ethiopian child receive access to quality education free of foreign aid by 2030. It’s an incredible goal that can be achieved within the next decade.

 

About Over + Above

Our Over + Above program supports coffee growing communities beyond paying producers excellent prices for their coffees. This year we finish a five year commitment to provide education, room, and board to nine girls in East Africa through CHES, and just agreed to sponsor 10 more through 2022. We participated in our sixth home building project with Habitat For Humanity in 2014, sponsoring 50% of costs and sending 12 JJ Bean staff to Guatemala. Our customers and suppliers contributed the other 50%. We are truly grateful for your continued support in these special projects, all of which are only made possible by your generous gifts.

JJ Bean takes on all administrative costs for Over + Above, so your donations go directly to the projects that we support.
