Gitega Hills

Gitega Hills Washing Station is owned and operated by Rwandan local producer Bernard Uwitije in southern Rwanda. The Gitega Hills Washing Station was the first of three stations acquired by Bernard’s company, Trapro Coffee, in 2016 and produces 450 tonnes of green beans each harvest that are supplied by hundreds of local small coffee farmers. Bernard recognises the needs for those in his community and so he puts efforts towards improving those areas through his business. They provide monthly training to farmers in agricultural practices and coffee seedlings to help start those new to the coffee farming industry. Trapro works with all farmers in the community but focuses on women and youth who were unable to complete higher education, as a way of boosting the community from a sustainable long-term vision.
