Girls Gotta Run is an organization that invests in girls who use running and education to empower themselves and their communities in Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee: it is in the forests of the Kaffa region that coffee arabica grew wild. Coffee is "Bun" or "Buna" in Ethiopia, so Coffee Bean is quite possibly a poor.
Sweet Maria’s has donated to Girls Gotta Run on an annual basis since 2014. We are proud to contribute to such a great group that gives back to the communities in a country that the coffee world recognizes as the birthplace of coffee.
“In Ethiopia, 95% of girls begin their education but only 10% complete through 12th grade. We’re on a mission to change that.-Girls Gotta Run
