Making a difference with Bwindi Coffee

Kateřina and Emmanuelle Chauveau are an enterprising couple who fell in love with Uganda and started helping orphans in Bwindi. In order to support their charity project they eventually set up a business based on their mutual love of coffee – exporting Bwindi coffee to their home town of Brno in Moravia where it is processed in a sheltered workshop. I spoke to Emmanuelle about their sustainable business venture and the rewards of being able to give Bwindi orphans the chance to lead a better life.
