by linking volunteers, concerned consumers and committed global citizens with  young people, women and farmers in small communities in Central America.

Since 1992, we have been building new hope by working to reduce poverty through education and community development, renewing hope and rebuilding lives in Central America. Read on!

Building New Hope's mission and value statement describes our purpose and our values.



 
 

Our teachers from Quinta los Chavalos recently wrote that three students - Norma, Julissa and Karina -- were awarded with an academic excellence prize for their high academic averages (between 93-98%) in the municipality! They added, "We are full of pride to realize that the work we do with Building New Hope is paying off for these students."

 

BNH offers coffee samples, sells bags of premium Nicaraguan coffee, and shares information about our work for sustainable development in Central America with the Pittsburgh community at numerous events, including the recent Yoga Expo.

 

At the El Porvenir Cooperative, organic and shade grown coffee berries are picked, harvested, sun-dried and prepared for shipping to Pittsburgh, PA for a delicious cup of coffee. Through our direct relationship, farmers receive a price they consider just and sustainable for their community.
