The remote village of Piñán, Ecuador is not far from where our coffee is grown. When we visited there, we saw the ways that the legacy of colonialism has severely limited opportunities for the people of Piñán. Access to education is just the first step in this community’s goal to bring work opportunities and sustainability to their remote village. Initially the goal was just to get a school built, but now that there is a school we are helping to provide funding to make post-secondary education a reality for the youth there. This will help empower the whole community because afterall: the great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
