Throughout the sunny slopes of the south of Rwanda, farming coffee became an important economic resource. Now, in 2020, coffee has a tremendous weight in the life of many of the genocide survivors.
Bèkske coffee aims to help some of these survivors. This is an initiative that helps a group of women to gain economic autonomy by receiving fair compensation with their work in coffee farms. Simultaneously, Bèkske is also a community from which they can feel supported and empowered.
Lea is one of these women that works with Bèkske. Throughout her day, we will learn more about the adversities she faced and how she is becoming empowered.
