Our purpose is to promote unity among faiths by providing just economics to the community.

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.

Our dream is to preach to all human beings that we are all brothers and sisters and to use religion as tool for bringing peace.
