International Coffee Day

Traveling all over the world with you, from a small farm, to your home, to an office, or to your car. It’s a way to begin your day and a way to connect with your old friends or loved ones while making new ones.

Coffee is more than just a drink– it’s culture. Everyday it brings people together all over the world, which is why we celebrate in its honor with International Coffee Day.

September 29, 2015 will mark 10 years since the event has been publicly celebrated. Since then, it is used as a day to celebrate diversity, quality, and passion and to raise awareness for the plight of the coffee growers.

In order to make coffee you have to you have to have people willing to help grow it.  However, the majority of the coffee that we drink comes from areas in need such as Trojes, Honduras.

Epitomizing a region without access to basic needs, Trojes Honduras is one of the poorest regions in the country- per-capita income is $1.25 per person per day and employment is agriculturally-based, largely represented by smallholder farmers who produce shade-grown coffee for export.

The majority of households have access only to contaminated water and access to proper sanitation facilities is dismal. More than 50% of homes have no access to a central water system, utilizing streams/rivers as their primary source of water for drinking, cooking and bathing.

Pure Water for the World (PWW) wants to help celebrate this global event by remembering that every little bit  will greatly contribute to helping provide for basic needs, most specifically for those working to produce coffee in Trojes,Honduras. We encourage everyone to be grateful and to help make a difference every day by giving someone else a chance in this life. Someone who may not be fortunate like you and I.
