Coffee Lifeline is a radio communications project that provides essential information and educational programming to coffee farmers, their families and the communities in which they live.
Utilizing Freeplay Foundation's wind-up and solar-powered Lifeline radios, which do not require batteries or electricity, Coffee Lifeline is intended to be an empowering and sustainable initiative that provides farmers with a vital tool as opposed to linking them to a charitable revenue stream which may often come with its own set of goals and limited lifespan.
In addition, Coffee Lifeline partners with regional community-based radio stations to produce weekly broadcasts that feature news and information relating to agronomy techniques, processing tips, current market conditions, health, local co-ops as well as a featured children's story corner.
The long term goal of Coffee Lifeline is to link coffee farmers around the world through the use of sustainable, self-powered radio technology and the weekly broadcast of a globally transmitted "World Café" program that will offer formerly isolated communities the opportunity to share their technical expertise, environmental wisdom and cultural heritage that continues to enrich all of our lives.
