My volunteer work experience

We are basking in the morning sun, lovely birds singing in the trees above our heads, enjoying the result of a great farming work. What could be better than aiming to be part of a fair world where people can enjoy the natural environment – that is not over-exploited but harvested with love and passion – and at the same time having delicious morning coffee?

I’m Pia Martin from Germany, a Master’s student in psychology at Albert-Ludwig University, Freiburg.  My aim as a volunteer worker for Iburu Coffee in Kenya was to help the farmers to get a good price for their naturally produced environmentally friendly product, and at the same time supporting their kids by organizing social events in their village. That feeling of being a big Iburu family is just what I fell in love with when I first came to Kenya in 2017 and has kept me motivated ever since.
