As a member of 1% for the Planet, we’re committed to donating 1% of all revenues to vetted environmental and social non-profits. 1% for the Planet is a network of businesses and individuals taking responsibility for the environment. We believe that we're better together and choose to work with non-profits that are near and dear to the causes on our heart, like the critical work of Kula Project.
Kula is a unique nonprofit that helps eradicate poverty though the development of female entrepreneurs in Rwanda. Through their fellowship that provides industry training, business investment, and life and leadership skills, Kula fellows are empowered to build profitable businesses, raise healthy families, and send their children to school.
Kula invests time and resources into listening. to the communities they serve, as they see relationship-building as a critical element of their work. They provide consistent and in-depth industry training, support, and follow-up to their fellows in their specific industries. They currently work in coffee farming, artisan goods, and agribusiness.
Kula invests in groups or individuals who have completed business training and submitted a business plan, equipping fellows to improve their current businesses or launch new ones.
