Mirembe Kawomera History

Like everything else in life, things change over time. The story of Mirembe Kawomera was wonderful – one man had a vision and changed his community once he was able to act on his idea, which was to unite coffee growers with different religions into a Fair Trade Certified coffee cooperative.

We told their story, purchased their coffee, and worked with the coop and its “Leadership” to help the story survive, and the Cooperative to flourish. However, over ten years, random and not so random events make things change. We decided to end our relationship with the Mirembe Kawomera Cooperative under its current leadership; lack of trust, predatory organizations, lack of transparency and too much financial risk is the reason. But, we have not abandoned the farmers who were being poorly served by their leadership.

We will continue to sell Delicious Peace Coffee from the same inspired farmers, and we will continue to support their coffee production by selling their coffee as we learn about and grow a new evolution of interfaith and tribal cooperation. We will not rest in the quest for improved living conditions for all, and see a bright future in sharing this story.

However, we feel it is important to honor the past decade of interfaith work with Mirembe Kawamera, and have preserved every story told during that time below, in our Blog Archive.
