#RP @falconcoffees // Falcon has been working in Ethiopia for many years and we have built a deep, longstanding relationship in the country. Whilst sourcing in 2015, we discovered Girls Gotta Run Foundation (GGRF). GGRF is the only non-profit organization in Ethiopia using the national sport of running as an innovative approach to supporting vulnerable girls. They create safe spaces, help alleviate child marriage and expand access to secondary school, as well as invest in the girls and their families to create long terms paths for self-reliance and financial resiliency.
.
Since 2015, Falcon has directly contributed a charitable donation each year from coffee purchases. This year, we have changed the structure of the donation. We will be sponsoring 10 girls and their mothers in the GGRF programme for an entire year, donating towards a variety of essentials, including tutoring, healthcare and daily meals. We are so pleased to be able to continue our support of this fantastic organization. We will soon be sharing news of how you can support GGRF too.
.
Thank you for your ongoing support, @falconcoffees!! To become a GGRF Athletic Scholarship Sponsor, visit our website or shoot us a DM today!

GGRF works closely with local offices, community members, grassroots organizations, schools and leaders in athletics to bring the GGRF Athletic Scholarship Program to life in Ethiopia.
