Nepal Green Tara Foundation
Our aspiration is to improve the livelihood of both women and men farmers in the mid-hills of Nepal by providing income and employment opportunities, through strengthening the ability of the coffee industry and increasing the area under coffee production. Nuwa Estate has directly benefitted at least 432 households involved in coffee production in Nuwakot region and an additional 1028 coffee-producing household indirectly through dissemination of knowledge and technology.
We have also had a positive environmental impact in the region by improving soil conservation, pest management, maintaining the biodiversity and imbedding in the barren sloped lands. One of the key visible move that was initiated by Nuwa Estate was that, on acknowledging and identifying the profuse absence of an appropriate structured educational system in the region, it obligated us to conceive an NGO (Non-Government Organization) to support the community. We named it as, Nepal Green Tara Foundation (NGTF). Since its formation NGTF have so far setup 6 Schools, provided several private teachers to government schools. Books, clothes and shoes to numerous students, health camp visits to all schools affiliated with us and several other steps.
We have worked diligently to sustain the long-term livelihood of small farmers and grower co-ops for more than 7 years. By working with our farmers we hope to further ascertain and support community programs that make a substantive difference in the lives of real people. For they are the reason our coffee is distinctively singular than the rest. It is this personal touch that makes our coffee so distinctive. With each sip you and we are changing lives.
