The Project

Coffee vs Gangs

CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE IN HONDURAS

For young Hondurans, gangs are a constant threat. Joining one may seem like the only option for survival. Last year, at Kenco, we started a project to make a difference.

We offered a group of young people a chance of a better life, by training them to be coffee farmers with the skills to grow great quality beans. The first students have completed their year-long course. They’re now building businesses of their own, backed by funding from Kenco.

In 2016, Kenco are doing the same for a whole new set of students. Once again, we’re teaching them all they need to know to become coffee farmers – skilled growers, producing the finest beans.

WHAT IS COFFEE VS GANGS?

Kenco is giving 20 young Hondurans the chance of a better life as coffee farmers.

This introductory film shows how the project can make a difference.
