Because it went to help the 700 orphans & vulnerable children living opposite!
Teapigs buy tea for their signature ‘Morning Glory Everyday Brew’ from Pfunda Tea Company Estate, a chicken’s hop across the road from what was Rwanda’s largest child institution – the Noel Orphanage.
That was in 2007. Over the years Teapigs have become a major donor partner with PF through their ethical scheme, first providing funds towards food for the orphanage, then developing on-going support to our disability & educational programmes.
Every pack of Teapigs Morning Glory donates towards PF. For instance, buying a pack of 50 tea bags gives 15p. The total raised so far reaches over £200,000 – giving back to Rwanda to create change for hundreds of disadvantaged children.
Recent funding has put 28 orphaned students through university, sponsors 20 primary school pupils with special needs, provides a home for 8 severely disabled youth & continues to support better welfare for many other socially impoverished youngsters.
But Teapigs aren’t just detached corporate donors – they’re involved. They know the names, life stories & struggles of the children and engage in finding solutions.
That’s the true spirit of making a difference.
