Women play a crucial agricultural role, often responsible for up to 80% of coffee farms’ labor, but their contributions are often invisible. Despite the challenges, female coffee producers and their communities in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo have the perseverance to move forward.

Since 2014, numerous farming communities in the South Kivu region have partnered with On the Ground to create gender equity programs and expand the role of women in regional coffee production. On the Ground’s Project Congo concentrates on gender equality and raising awareness about key issues faced by coffee farming families in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Funds from Project Congo provide transformative opportunities to farmers by introducing programs that support women’s empowerment at both farm and cooperative levels. Initiatives will promote peace and gender equality while working to break the chains of poverty and conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
