EMPOWERING WOMEN IN COFFEE ORIGIN COMMUNITIES (BENTANI PHASE II)
Mercy Corps Indonesia (MCI) is a local Indonesian non-profit organization, which implements humanitarian and development assistance programs throughout the country. MCI’s mission is to empower people in Indonesia to become healthy, productive, and resilient communities. Resilience means an ability to recover form or adjust easily to misfortune or change.
Mercy Corps Indonesia’s expansion into West Java will build on the success of the BENTANI program (Phase I) and reach additional coffee farming families in Bandung, Bandung Barat, and Garut Districts to overcome barriers to wellbeing and financial health. We will reach 2,700 female coffee farmers/farmers’ wives, 300 girls and 300 men in newly identified locations and deepen engagement with 300 young women from BENTANI Phase I (totaling 3,600).
Women’s lack of access to financial services, markets, networking, lack of public awareness, and the large amount of waste in the coffee farming area where waste also affects soil quality will be addressed. A behavior change approach will be incorporated into the waste management module with a focus on reducing domestic waste and the appropriate disposal of waste. We will continue to engage Starbucks Partners to lend their expertise as volunteers in social impact activities to provide inspiration to start or develop women and young women’s businesses.
- Improve the health of coffee farming families through health education, improved WASH facilities, and household waste management,
- Increase the economic resilience of women coffee farmers and improve financial inclusion through strengthening women’s banking agents, and
- Expand economic opportunity for women-led and -owned enterprises through business development and digital marketing.
The program will directly impact 3,600 participants.
