Overview

Self-reported by organization

The IWCA is a global network of women in coffee that advocates for the reduction of barriers for these women in coffee producing countries by providing access to resources while creating a forum in which to connect with other women throughout the coffee chain from seed to cup. Our goal is to give women the independence by empowering them with the knowledge and monetary support that will help shift the role of women in coffee growing communities.
