The Santa Clara Scholarship Fund
Journal | Market Lane Coffee
The Zelaya family founded the Santa Clara Scholarship Program in 2011 to help support their farm workers children’s education. Many children in Guatemala are forced to stop going to school early because school fees, and associated costs like school uniforms, are unaffordable for their families. We made our first contribution to the fund in 2014, and have been contributing every year since.
NAIDOC Week 2020
NAIDOC Week is an annual celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It’s celebrated not just in Indigenous communities, but in all communities across the country. It's a great opportunity to learn more about, and support, your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
To our community: an update
In June this year we wrote to our community, outlining some of the steps we are taking to become an actively anti-racist business.

We realised we were not doing enough and needed to do more.

The worldwide Black Lives Matter protests over the last two weeks have been confronting, enlightening, inspiring, devastating and galvanising. As individuals, and as a business, these events have forced us to reflect on the injustices and racism that exist here in Australia, and to examine our own role in both the problems and the solutions.
