Weʼre raising £1,500 to Support the Costa Foundation in building schools in coffee growing communities.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Sim Trava are a franchise partner of Costa Coffee and therefore we are raising money for the Costa Foundation through various in-store activities across our 32 Costa stores.
About the Costa Foundation
The Costa Foundation is an independant charity that aims to relieve poverty in coffee-growing communities. Its mission is to improve the life chances of boys and girls by providing them with the opportunity for a quality education. Foundation schools deliver both academic and extracurricular programs that enhance health, gender equality and environmental awareness.
Farmers are an integral part of the Costa family, and their amazing coffee growing skills are the reason we’re able to bring you high quality coffee that’s packed full of flavour. We care about our coffee and we care about farmers, that’s why we set up the Costa Foundation, which aims to relieve poverty, advance education and by doing so, improve health and protect the environment of coffee-growing communities around the world. The Costa Foundation supports these communities without expecting anything in return which means we are often helping farmers in areas where we are not able to buy their coffee.
Targets & Achievements
To date, the Costa Foundation has supported 72 school projects in nine countries around the world. Children are currently benefitting from Costa Foundation funded facilities in Colombia, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Peru, Nicaragua, Vietnam and Uganda with a school under construction in Zambia.
The Costa Foundation has supported much more than just building classrooms. In the 72 communities that the Costa Foundation has been working with, many additional projects have been completed. Libraries, additional classrooms, dormitories and computer labs, school farm projects and teacher accommodation are just some of the successful ways that further support has been granted to help deliver much more than just academic education.
