We also are going to organise some affordable SCA courses at origins for all the non-resident students who want to discover Kenya and improve their knowledge. These paying students will fund the education of the resident Coffee Professional. For this we will need coffee camp organisers help and advice. 

Coffee Camp Organisers, in exchange of your help, you will also enjoy the same advantages as the other Volunteer Coffee Professional.
