Sustainable Coffee Bay (SCB) is a nonprofit organisation whose mission is to increase access to, and quality of education, skills and employment. Sustainable Coffee Bay manages and facilitates projects in three focus areas, Early Childhood Development, Education and Youth Development and Rural Assistance.
Sustainable Coffee Bay is a registered non-profit and public benefit organisation. We work with the communities of the greater Coffee Bay area to improve their lives through education and other community initiatives.
Since 2002 projects were run informally by Coffee Shack Backpackers. They were managed by Coffee Shack staff and funded by Coffee Shack and its guests. As the projects grew in number and size, Sustainable Coffee Bay (SCB) was formed to manage the community projects and raise the necessary funds.
Sustainable Coffee Bay is based in Coffee Bay, Ward 24 in the Mqanduli district of the KSD Regional Municipality, which is part of the OR Tambo District Municipality, in the Eastern Cape and is part of the Tshezi Traditional Authority, under the leadership of Chief Ngwenyati Pali. Several of the surrounding villages have been identified as some of the poorest areas in the country. As a former homeland of South Africa and having endured a deliberate policy of under investment during apartheid, the area still suffers from having an extremely low socio-economic status. The impact of this is experienced through poor infrastructure, a lack of educational and employment opportunities and many of the other economic and environmental entrapments naturally associated with financial poverty.
