Our Plantation and Foundation
It all began in 2014, when Youngevity International purchased a 1,000-acre coffee plantation in the lush rainforest of Matagalpa, Nicaragua. At the time, the plantation was in a state of disrepair, but was home to 180 dedicated workers and their families. We saw the possibility of restoring that plantation to its former splendor, but first kicked off what seemed like a simple “Kindness Project” request for gently used clothing from our distributors and customers. The response was so great, we not only helped clothe the workers and families on our plantation, we provided clothing for all the other plantations on the mountain. The neighboring plantations began calling ours “The Giving Plantation,” and the Youngevity Be The Change Foundation grew wings.
