The Nehemia Pepper Project

6 Mar , 2015  

Pepper (normally of quite high quality) is a traditional crop of Borneo. The local small farmers receive a fair price from the Nehemia Team – significantly more than if they sell to local middlemen. The handmade pepper containers are also manufactured in the villages, creating an extra source of income for still more families. Remaining profits from the sale of the pepper are channeled directly into projects integrative local development projects, such as establishing and supporting kindergartens. The attractive containers with 50 gm each of high-quality pepper can be purchased from the Nehemia office for 5 euros each (minimum of five containers per order).
