Cup For Education is a non-profit organization designed to help poor rural coffee communities of Central and Latin America build schools within their communities and assist in providing them with teachers and the basic tools needed to educate the future generations of coffee farmers. Cup for Education sponsors a teacher for the Solidarity School in the community of Los Alpes in Jinotega, Nicaragua. Entering its second year, Karen Gordon, president and founder of CFE, says, “We are pleased to have raised enough funds to enable us to sponsor the teacher again for the school. The additional teacher allows this community to send children to school to further their education by another grade level.” For more information, go to cupforeducation.org or call 800.458.2233.
