About this non-profit:

Travel with us as we venture to Costa Rica, Mexico, and Nicaragua with Coffee Kids, a New Mexico-based organization dedicated to improving the lives of coffee farmers and their families through the development of sustainable community projects. Founded by coffee roaster Bill Fishbein, Coffee Kids works with local partners in Central America and Mexico to design projects that respect the cultural integrity of the communities, foster independence, and ensure long-term self-sufficiency. In Costa Rica we meet a high school scholarship recipient overcoming the obstacles to getting an education with the help of Coffee Kids and a local educational foundation. We also visit an isolated community where Coffee Kids is helping to slowly improve the education offered in the area. In Mexico and Nicaragua we talk with women involved in local savings groups that have led to numerous improvements in the lives of the participants and their families.
