News ACCOUNTABLE IMPACT PARTNER PROJECTS

In 2015, we set up the Community2Community Fund™ to ensure every purchase of Mozzo coffee delivers a positive impact for the growing communities. In March 2022, we are delighted to celebrate that over £100k has been invested into the Fund since its launch. A massive thanks to you, all of our fantastic customers and partners, who have helped us achieve this milestone.

Investment goes directly to our partner cooperatives who take the lead on how the money can be best put to use. C2C Fund™ investment most recently built the first-ever maternity clinic on Idjwi Island in partnership with female-led cooperative Rebuild Women’s Hope (RWH).

After a 2-year partnership with RWH, the ultimate goal of self-sufficiently funding the clinic has been achieved. Honoured to have been a part of the journey, we are thrilled to see the difference C2C Fund™ investment has made to the community on Idjwi.
