Colombia Wastewater Management Project
This year we have an opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of 168 farmers in Colombia as a part of a water project we are working on to promote water conservation. We will be working with Portland Roasting Coffee, the Human Bean and The Coffee Source to make this a success. Our objective is to produce a waste water collection facility at every coffee farm (total: 168 farms) within the entire region of Caldas, Colombia.
A waste water collection facility will lower the water consumption and waste water throughout the entire region. This will make it easier for specialty coffee companies to purchase coffee that has been more sustainably produced. More importantly, this will have a positive impact on hundreds of people in Colombia.
As expected this is an ambitious project that will require several fundraisers that we expect will span a three year time period. We are hoping to raise $10,000 through this particular event. This first pub crawl is the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of this project while raising funds that will be used for this purpose.
