Alison Hall
Founder, Seeds for Development
bringing you the coffee

I'm Alison Hall and I'm from Guildford in the south of England.

 

In 2007 I started a charity called Seeds for Development, working with Ugandan farmers helping them to kick poverty out of their lives through farming.  

 

In 2011 I dreamed about how wonderful it would be if my morning coffee had been grown by the farmers we support through the charity.  My background is in marketing and I used to work for IBM before leaving to concentrate on making that dream a reality.

I'm Roselyn Okello and I'm from Lira in the north of Uganda.

 

I work for the NGO Send a Cow Uganda spending my days with farmers across the region helping them build a better life for themselves after the war which destroyed our lives and homes for over 20 years.

 

We have been through a hard time and must develop ourselves to build a better future.  This coffee enterprise will allow people to become self-sustainable today and in the future.

bringing you the coffee

I'm Paul Clarke and I'm from Todmorden in the north of England.

 

I am a professor of Education and work and write books about how we must change how we live in order to preserve our planet for future generations.

 

I believe that change will come when we learn about and start making small changes in our behaviour.  This enterprise will lead us on a journey of discovery based on coffee which will result in a better world for everything and everyone.

I'm TImothy Njakasi and I'm from Mukono in the south of Uganda.

 

I am a farmer and the Managing Director of The Kasenge-Riverford Organic Agricultural Centre where we teach farmers from around the world on sustainable organic agriculture.

 

I believe that Uganda is blessed with fertile soils and a beautiful climate. Our coffee is the best and we should be using it to build a country free from malnutrition and poverty.
