DELICIOUS PEACE GROWS IN A UGANDAN COFFEE BEAN
Living in the wake of the Idi Amin reign of terror and institutional discrimination, one Ugandan coffee farmer organized a group of Christian, Muslim and Jewish neighbors to challenge historical (as well as economic and environmental) hurdles. He formed the 'Delicious Peace Coffee Cooperative' to enhance peaceful relationships and economic development. Through their partnership with a Fair Trade US distributor, the standard of living of the farmers is improving, peace is flourishing, and their messages of peace and fair wages are spreading to coffee customers in the US.
