We have been privileged to receive an award by the Ugandan government for being one of the 100 best performing middle size organizations. We were number 23 and this gave us a lot of inspiration. We are also currently the highest vanilla buying organization in the area. Our coffee buyers have increased their buying price from 1.85 cents a pound to 2.15 cents a pound because of our improvement in quality. This has greatly encouraged the farmers to produce even more coffee. USAID has also given us a grant and which we have used to begin construction on a new building, to buy coffee drying trays, to provide electricity to our offices and coffee equipment, and to construct a wall fence. There used to be only one employee but there are now 10 employees including the 6 facilitators who are field officers educating the farmers about improved coffee production.
