Here at 23 Degrees, we share a passion for education. We genuinely believe that education is a catalyst for positive change and empowerment. That's why we have actively supported educational initiatives in our farming communities, with a focus on health, farming, and financial management.
We are thrilled to have recently partnered with Edithvale Primary School and Meg's Global Citizenship Student Ambassador Program on a local education project to equip students with the skills and mindset needed to become leaders of tomorrow, capable of driving positive change both locally and globally.
It's truly inspiring to witness the students of Edithvale Primary School take action through their EdiBeans initiative. Through this project, they have created an ethical coffee supply chain using 23 Degrees's Peruvian Café Femenino coffee, which champions gender equality and fair trade prices. The students run stalls to sell the coffee beans and share the message of the Café Femenino Program with their local community. What's even more impressive is that they donate the profits to Down Syndrome Victoria, Fight MND, and Chelsea Community Pantry.
It's amazing to see young, engaged students who want to make a difference in the world, understand global issues and translate them into a local context, connecting with their community. We wholeheartedly congratulate the students of Edithvale Primary School, their educators, Meg's Global Citizenship Student Ambassador Program, and the entire Edithvale community for their incredible achievement.
