COFFEE THAT BREWS CHANGE: Transforming Lives One Bag at a Time
We believe that a good cup of coffee should not only taste great but also make a positive impact on the world. That's why, with every bag of our coffee sold, we donate $1 to Lifewater, a top-rated Christian water charity committed to loving like Jesus and bringing safe water to families in extreme poverty.
Safe drinking water and basic sanitation are critical to life. Without them, families walk miles for water that makes them sick, spend their income on medication, and struggle to send their children to school. More than 771 million people live without access to safe water, and every two minutes a child dies from a preventable waterborne disease.
The good news: the problem of no clean water is entirely preventable.
We can end the crisis in our lifetime.

The water crisis disproportionately affects women.
In 80% of households without safe water, women and girls are responsible for gathering the day’s water. This takes women and girls away from activities like working and going to school, trapping them in a cycle of poverty. And when it comes to giving birth, a lack of safe water in health centers results in up to eight percent of all maternal deaths globally. For women who don’t die, infections make them and their infants dangerously sick. Safe water and sanitation creates a safer environment for women, one where women can live, pursue their dreams, and thrive as God intends.
It only takes $60 to provide safe water, sanitation and hygiene education, and the love of Christ to each person served by Lifewater!
Every time you purchase a bag of coffee from Mama Java, you are contributing in helping the water crisis and making a lasting impact on someone’s life.
