Bringing together farmers, families and industry leaders...
PGE works hard to unlock the potential of coffee farming women, youth and their families, promote equitable opportunities for their communities to thrive, and catalyze bold industry action toward a supply chain that works for everyone.
Since the publication of The Way Forward: Accelerating Gender Equity in the Coffee Value Chain in October 2015, we’ve been gathering industry input, implementing field projects, and building tools for greater understanding and engagement.
In celebration of our 3-year anniversary, we invite you to join us in building an industry-wide movement for greater gender – and generational – equity in coffee farming communities around the world. This initiative Equal Origins will work to ensure that everyone, at every level of the supply chain, matters equally.
Be one of 10 industry leaders to invest in PGE’s innovative household workshops designed to generate:
- Immediate impact for farmers and their families
