Rumblebees Bookshop and Music Cafe has opened in Felsted.
And owners Trevor and Jane Beeston have partnered with Felsted School’s pupil charity team, and agreed to serve and sell Ugandan Safi Coffee.
Safi Coffee is a pupil-led Community Interest Company seeks to pioneer entrepreneurship, develop international friendships and sponsor education in Uganda.
Felsted School has partnered with Hull Collegiate School, Highgate School and Great Lakes High School in Uganda.
All profits go directly to the education of young people in the Kanungu region, aiming to break the cycle of poverty for many young people.
Students visit Uganda every two years, teaching in schools and working in the community where they tend to the coffee plantation.
It costs £180 to fund a child to attend school in Uganda for a year including accommodation, food, water and healthcare.
