About Hivos

Hivos is an international organisation that seeks new solutions to persistent global issues. With smart projects in the right places, we oppose discrimination, inequality, abuse of power and the unsustainable use of our planet’s resources. Counterbalance alone, however, is not enough. Our primary focus is achieving structural change. This is why we cooperate with innovative businesses, citizens and their organisations. We share a dream with them of sustainable economies and inclusive societies.
Twin & Twin Trading Limited together with Hivos through funding from Comic Relief are working with Vuasu Cooperative Union in Same, Kilimanjaro region, Tanzania. Vuasu Cooperative Union, like many East African coffee POs, faces two main challenges: improving its productivity to bridge the gap with other origins (225 - 250 kg/ha against 600kg/ha in Ethiopia or 800-1000 kg/ha in Peru, Guatemala or Honduras) and improving its quality to capture part of the growth of the specialty coffee market. By increasing the visibility of women and youth along the value chain, enhancing their decision-making power and control over assets and ensuring equal access to income and extension services, we will positively affect VCU’s coffee quality and productivity and thereby secure their position as a strong market player in the specialty coffee industry. It is estimated that around coffee farmer 5,104 (518-fe) who are members of VCU and 11,000 non-active members will benefit.
The 5 year Gender and generational empowerment with Vuasu Cooperative Union programme will build on the achievements of Hivos’ work with Vuasu and integrate Twin’s 6 pillars of development for smallholder organizations: Gender Justice, Sustainable Agriculture, Business Management, Governance, Quality and Processing and Market Access. It will draw on existing global and regional expertise, including Hivos Head office, Hivos Regional Office in Nairobi, locally-based GALS and sustainable agriculture consultant, Hivos Programme Coordinator in Tanzania.
