Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee and their Do Good initiative are genuinely dedicated to personal relationships with their coffee growing partners. In a Facebook post, Do Good director Karen Akridge Houghton shows a boy receiving a copy of a photo I shot of him the last time I was there. Karen, and Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee have made a long-term commitment to the people of Rwanda where they work. Their investment is neither fly-by-night or short-term focused. The receiving of a photo may be a small thing in our media-saturated lifestyle, but for this child, I am sure this act of kindness by Karen will be remembered for a long time.
