We work closely with the Mount Elgon Agroforestry Communities Cooperative Enterprise (MEACCE). MEACCE represents farmers from rural communities on the slopes of Mount Elgon and is committed to sustainably improving the livelihoods and quality of life of its member farmers and their communities. The cooperative is made up of 11 primary societies (farmer groups).
Lutheran World Relief invested in the creation of Mountain Harvest as part of its impact investing initiative through which it invests in innovative companies that engage rural communities in the production of agricultural products for local, regional and international markets to raise incomes, build assets, increase resilience to shocks and ultimately provide smallholder farmers pathways out of poverty.
We are members of the Africa Fine Coffees Association and actively participate in their conferences and exhibits.
