    Coffeesnobs FairCrack Blanket Project #1 Manoshi Village

    Coffeesnobs FairCrack provided the funding in Jan 2012 for a local Tanzanian business to weave blankets for the Manoshi village on Kilimanjaro.

    The blanket project means that the villagers dont have to sleep in smoke filled huts, they use less timber each year thus have a smaller impact on the mountain and because the blankets were produced locally they also created employment.

    Win-win-win!



    Thanks to Bente at Machare and thanks to CoffeeSnobs everywhere for making this happen. The positive impact from this simple project will be huge and long lasting.

    Bente guesses that 2000 odd people live on Mt Kilimanjaro so I think the banket project will be something that we continue for a long time to come as it improves their health, lives and the coffee growing environment.
