Actually, yes. Children. From May 2019 part of your 100% coffee donation will be used to provide food support to an existing after-school meal programme in Tokyo’s suburbs. Over the last 3 years our partner organsiation have been providing a free meal for children in twice-a-week. With the assistance of donations raised from our coffee subscribers we aim to increase the frequency of the free daily meal from 2 days to 6 days a week.
Child Poverty in Japan
Sadly Japan is not immune to child poverty. While we can’t disclose all details of the after-school programme we can paint a picture. Most of the kids are aged between 8 to 12 whose sole parent usually works anti-social hours if they have work at all. As many of the children rely on the after-school meal to supplement their next day’s breakfast we felt it made sense to help what little we can. We thank you for your understanding.
P.S In case you are thinking we’ve switched priorities we haven’t. We continue to send the majority of our donations to Malawi to fund existing commitments. All we ask is that you drink more coffee!
Our social enterprise partners in the UK have come up with an idea that reduces waste in the UK and helps to end poverty in Malawi.
