The East African Tea Trade Association is a progressive and socially aware organization. As such we are dedicated to integrating good corporate citizenship into our business strategies. CSR is integral to the long term sustainability of our business. In line with the mandate of theAssociation, the following CSR Projects were supported under EATTA’s CSR Programme 2016:

  • Mji wa Salama Children’s Home
  • Coast Hospice
  • Rwanda
  • Malawi

Mji wa Salama Children’s home is an institutional care centre under the Child Welfare Society of Kenya which was started in 1970. It caters for orphans, abandoned neglected children of jailed parents, abused children both defilement/battered cases, HIV and Immigrants. Currently the home has 86 children; 50 boys and 36 girls ranging from 5 months to 18 years. We supported the Children’s home with basic needs including, food, medicine, clothes, firewood, footwear, pampers as well as paying off their electricity bill for the consumption period July-August. The home depends entirely on donations from well-wishers for its upkeep/survival and re-current expenditure.

The Coast Hospice, registered as a charity is the only hospice in the Coast region. It is located in Mombasa County and started operation in 2001. They provide quality palliative care to terminal ill cancer and HIV/AIDS patients, through the proper administration of drugs for pain and symptom control, as well as support to their families and care givers. Every year they have a direct impact in the lives of over 1,800 patients. Their goal is to bring peace to their last days and minimize suffering that comes along with terminal illness. This year EATTA supported the hospice through purchase of drugs, plastic chairs and tables as well as rebranding their signage which had worn out.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and Management of EATTA, we express our utmost and sincere gratitude and appreciation to Van Rees Kenya Ltd and Venus Tea Brokers who contributed Kshs 300,000 and Kshs 10,000 respectively to go towards the two charities. This is truly the true spirit of embracing CSR and we are truly humbled.
