When the Haven Project approached Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee Company (LOTH) about creating a social enterprise, the proposal was warmly welcomed. LOTH entered a unique partnership with the Haven Project to create a specialty coffee shop in Lynn, MA which both contributes to the restoration of Rwanda and reinvests profit to the underserved homeless youth on the North Shore.
After the genocide in 1994, Rwanda made a commitment to national restoration. Upon visiting this country, Jonathan Golden, founder of LOTH, recognized a simple and tangible opportunity to make a difference in the reconciliation of the Rwandan people. This idea led Golden to start a coffee company that pays a fair wage to the farmers of Rwanda, helps them with their basic needs, and brings a quality product to coffee lovers
