Here at Gorilla Highlands Coffee, we are committed to creating partnerships with like-minded Organisations to work towards:
- Sustainable Business Practices
- Supporting the local people of Uganda
- Protecting the endangered Mountain Gorillas
We take pride in our Partnerships, knowing that together we can create a sustainable business, aimed at conserving the 600+ Mountain Gorillas located here in our corner of the Gorilla Highlands.
GHC is working to minimize humans and gorillas' conflicts through our donations to the Uganda Wildlife Authority. Furthermore, we support frontline communities with economic opportunities and encourage them to turn 'From Poachers to Protectors.' We do this by providing ex-poachers with:
1) Alternative income through sustainable coffee and tea production
2) Trekking with gorillas for visitors to experience these majestic creatures in their natural environment
Through the inclusion of frontline communities in the whole conservation chain and in the coffee production process, including coffee eco-tourism projects, we provide the missing link for engaging, purposeful, and productive livelihoods to encourage protecting gorilla habitats.
If you would like to discuss potential partnerships, we are always on the lookout for like-minded partners to help us grow and to advocate for the work we are doing with the local people of Uganda to protect the endangered mountain gorillas.
