Our Story

Generative Partners® carries out its programs in partnership with local people and organizations in the communities we serve. Our Program Coordinator in Vila do Café, Encruzilhada, Bahia, Brazil grew up as the daughter of coffee farm laborers and lives in this community.

We partner with the Foundation of Assistance and Human Development for Children and Adolescents of Vitória da Conquista (aka FAMEC) in Bahia, Brazil to provide children and teens ages 5-17 with healthy meals, dental care, safe drinking water, education, capoeira, music, percussion, art and dance.

After talking with men and women working as coffee harvesters in the coffee-producing community of Vila do Café, Encruzilhada, Bahia, Brazil, we learned that they struggled to meet their children’s basic needs for food, education, and health.

We began working with the people of this community in 2004. As we learned with them, our mission evolved. We work with people in coffee-producing countries to improve children’s lives through programs in education, health, sustainability, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (W.A.S.H.).

We also worked with local people and organizations in the coffee-growing community of Talnique, La Libertad, El Salvador to serve children there through programs focused on education, health, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (W.A.S.H.).
