Our Sustainable Giving Initiative
We believe that children are our future. We believe that it is our responsibility to ensure every child is appreciated, respected and supported. We also believe that we are very much part of that responsibility and so we have created a Sustainable Giving Initiative which supports the five very worthy organisations listed below, that are making a significant contribution to the lives of thousands of children.
The Sustainable Giving Initiative ensures that we donate a percentage of sales for every bag of Loba coffee sold. So, every cup of Loba coffee you drink, not only brings with it great taste, but also comfort and hope to children across our land. Join with us in making that difference by buying Loba Coffee.
