Premium Kyela Rice (1kg / 2.2lbs)
Aromatic, Medium Grain
Harvested in the Kyela region of Tanzania by the PTA of the Mwaya Secondary School, this Premium Kyela White Medium Grain Rice is some of the best rice we've ever had. But more importantly than that, this rice has a story. It's A Product Of Change™.
Just like our Tableya in Davao, Philippines, one hundred percent of the sales of this Rice funds meals for the students at Mwaya, where they currently eat one meal per day. We purchase the rice for $1.50 and sell it for $16.50; the $15 profit is used by the PTA and teachers to fund the meals.
Each bag of Rice that you buy funds 220 meals.This will ensure a meal every day for each student for one school year. That's a total of 220,000 meals for 1,100 students. In other words, the Askinosie Chocolate University Mwaya Secondary School Lunch Program operates using no donations. Our Chocolate University students, along with Mwaya students and teachers, packaged the Rice while we were in Tanzania last summer.
