Since its establishment, Buna Qela has implemented a number social development and coffee improvement projects. The main ones include social development projects like clean water supply, electric supply, construction of access road, construction of primary schools, construction clinics (human and veterinary), construction of farmers’ training center and construction of church; and coffee improvement activities like distribution of quality coffee seedlings, stumping, pruning, compost and training on quality and requirements of different certification standards.
Up to 2019, Buna Qela development activities were coordinated and implemented by volunteer management and staff members of Kerchanshe Trading PLC. As of July 2019, Buna Qela has employed its own staff members. The organization is developing its flagship integrated development program, Integrated Coffee Farmers’ Community Development Program (INCODEP). Buna Qela’s INCODEP program is financed by Kerchanshe Trading and its coffee business partners around the world. This annual work plan is for implementation of INCODEP program in 2020.
