April 1st, 2018:
Time passes WAY too fast, it’s already April and I’m planning for another trip (to Europe!) but I also remembered that I hadn’t even blogged about my time in Myanmar in January. So here is the first of a few posts about my weeks in Southeast Asia doing some work with a few various NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) and social enterprises.
This post is about the days I spent with Behind the Leaf Coffee in the mountains outside Inle Lake. Behind the Leaf is a social enterprise that works to empower local communities by buying their raw coffee beans in small batches and setting up one main facility for processing, drying, roasting and finally overseas sales.
Thanks Melanie for bringing me into your community in the mountains and for the inspiring work you are doing with the communities there.
