From Conflict

to Coffee

Landmines and explosive remnants of war afflict ten of the top coffee-producing countries in the world.  In countries ranging from Ethiopia to Colombia, communities of coffee workers and their families experience the devastation of landmines and other explosives on a daily basis.

The Coffeelands Trust and the Coffee Alliance are vehicles for both the public and private sector to support rehabilitation services and to be able to give something back to coffee farmers who often risk their lives to produce coffee to support their families. Investing in coffee farmers who have been hurt by landmines is a means to help others, improve specialty coffee quality and production and is an economic development strategy that will promote both peace and prosperity.

THE EXHIBITION

The images in this collection highlight 20 years of work with landmine survivors in and around coffee growing regions.
