CCC Foundation is a non-profit organization based on the principles of Courage, Compassion & Commitment. The foundation’s mission is to support the people of Sri Lanka by providing treatment for cancer at its National Cancer Institute and by offering emotional well-being and mental health care support through its CCC Line telephone counseling service. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf provided funds to sponsor rooms for families of children fighting cancer in the foundation’s new CCC House, a transit home for underprivileged cancer outpatients and their caregivers.
The Mukengeria Tea Estate
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf was the first U.S. company to buy tea from the Mukengeria Tea Estate in Kenya. Since we began our relationship with Mukengeria, we’ve focused on the livelihood of its people. Our contributions have helped build a nursery school on the estate, ensuring the children of tea growers a safe and nurturing learning environment. Customers’ donations have also helped provide coloring books, school supplies and reading books.
Bogawantalawa Tea Estate
The Bogawantalawa Tea Estate, where we purchase all of our Ceylon teas, is located in the Bogawantalawa Valley in Sri Lanka. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf funded construction of a community center and education facility for the estate’s workers and their families. In addition, a portion of the purchases of our Ceylon teas goes to funding other initiatives, including a library and a daycare center for the estate workers’ children.
Nantou Ren-Ai Home for Orphaned Children
This home is located in Nantou County Taiwan, just a few miles away from the estate where our Taiwan Green Tea is grown. Through direct donations and proceeds from the sale of the tea, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf supports this home in partnership with the estate’s owner. The home provides a happy and healthy environment for children from 18 months to 18 years of age.
