Into pursue further our existing projects of and to introduce new projects, we needed to raise funds for these activities.
We decided to hold a coffee market or Coffee Santhe in Bangalore, which is the coffee capital in India. We held this Santhe on a weekend in Decemberat a well known boulevard in Bangalore, which sees a lot of footfalls on a daily basis. We brought together various cafes, coffee roasters, coffee exporters, coffee accessory makers, coffee artists, coffee equipment manufacturers under an umbrella, to showcase coffee in all its forms and to educate the public of the city.
We even encouraged new coffee products to be launched at the event. We held lectures and seminars on coffee, to educate the public on the various aspects of coffee around the world. The entry was free and footfalls were high! We were able to generate funds from the Santhe, besides receiving small donations to sponsor some of the events at the Santhe. Art competition for children is also being held successfully, year after year, attracting a large number of school children to participate in the painting and fancy dress competitions, with the theme on coffee and thus, spreading the message of coffee to the very young also.

Since to-date, we have been continuing to hold a Coffee Santhe or market at the end of every year, to not only generate funds for our projects, which have since increased, but also to disseminate the aroma and flavour of coffee far and wide and at the same time, to help the less privileged coffee women plantation workers and their girl children.
Our Latest Upcoming Event: The santhe has indeed helped in bringing together women from diverse coffee growing regions in India to empower the less privileged women in the coffee sector. We contribute to the education of a few children, who are being looked after by the Naandi Foundation. The health camps help in carrying out the basic health survey, besides referral wherever required, in the disciplines of gynaecology, ophthalmology and general medicine. Follow-up camps are also carried out when required.
Children studying in government run schools and private schools in the coffee growing regions are being sponsored for their education. Every year, additional children are being sponsored under this project, to help in encouraging girl children to be educated. These girl children and their mothers are not only covered under the Health Insurance scheme, but also all members of the respective families, irrespective of their gender, are covered.
