When Coffee Meets Water

In rural Rwanda, where roughly one in four people lack access to a safe water source, many communities rely on rivers and streams to drink, wash, clean, farm, and play.

Farmers using sustainable agriculture techniques can mean the difference between a community having safe water or not. This video highlights a coffee farmer in Rwanda named Ferdinand who is using his Rainforest Alliance training to keep his community’s water safe and unpolluted. This means  cleaner water and healthier rivers. Good news for communities downstream!
