Help Kazomba Appeal- See VIDEO below!
Starting on Tuesday 28th November we began a fundraising campaign “Help Kazomba” to raise necessary funds to dig a well in partnership with a community organisation near Kazomba in Northern Malawi.
We aim to raise over USD 6,700 to send to Malawi to ensure water for an entire community and to ensure the survival of a special little nursery school- known locally as “Kurya Ndiko Uku”. Today the school has no water- not even dirty water.
We are asking for your donation- 1,000 yen.
We commit to sending your donation- 100% of it- to Malawi as soon as we reach our target.
Our Give- Malawian Tea/Coffee
In the spirit of Christmas we will in turn send you a freshly roasted (December roast date) 100 gms of Malawian Coffee or a 100 gms pack of Malawian Earl Grey or Black Tea from the Satewmwa Tea Estate.
About Malawian Coffee
Coffee provides a livelihood for some 125 million people on this planet- almost the entire population of Japan. Coffee growers work in beautiful locations but many live in poverty. Malawi- also known as the “Warm Heart of Africa”- is no exception. Despite being located in the home of coffee on the African continent and being home to the oldest tea bushes in Africa, Malawi’s coffee & tea remains relatively unknown.
Our coffee is grown in the northern highlands of Malawi where climate conditions are particularly good for the crop. Planting coffee is also a soil conservation measure in these areas, where erosion is a widespread problem. Coffee is mainly planted by smallholders, so it is often inter-cropped with other species in order to supply food to the household. Today the coffee harvest consists mainly of the Geisha & Agaro varieties and the coffee is 100% Arabica. The coffee itself is smooth and full bodied and like all good African coffees slightly floral.
Make a donation of 1,000 yen by Clicking Here and we will deliver you a freshly roasted 100gm pack of ground or beans coffee. Simply let us know your preference and delivery address at time of donation.
About Malawian Tea
Malawi was the 1st country in Africa to grow tea on a large scale- which began as an alternative crop to coffee. The majority of the tea grown in Malawi today is exported to Japan and Europe. Malawi’s tea industry is also one of the largest employers of women, with over 51% of the workforce female. Seibo have partnered with Malawi’s most innovative tea producer- Satemwa- to provide our donors with a unique tea experience. Make a donation of 1,000 yen by Clicking Here and let us know if you want us to deliver a pack of Early Grey (100 gms) or Black Tea (100 gms) and don’t forget your postal address!
Together We Can
We began this campaign on the 28th of November or “Giving Tuesday” and we are committed to succeeding in helping the nursery children, their parents and the community at large. We have been providing school feeding in Malawi since early 2016 and daily feed over 14,000 children. However from time to time we come across situations that require intervention. Your 1,000 yen can completely change the lives of thousands of people far away. Not only are you providing fresh water and supporting the local coffee & tea growing industries- you are also setting in motion the promise of future school feeding for this nursery and many others.
We need your help and we need it now.
