Latumba washing station is situated along the shores of Lake Kivi, one of the Great Lakes of Africa, resting at 1700 metres above sea level.
The AMKA Co-op has a total of 1,400 members who are currently rebuilding following decades of conflict and economic turmoil.
The washing station was built in 2014 with the help of a Belgian NGO, COMEQUI, who have been working there since 2009 to empower coffee farmers through education, and creating co-operatives to bring people together and widen agricultural skills. Their goal is to help the farmers become self-sustainable whilst improving their income and lives.
