#LiveFromKenya with Lydia, Kenya’s Top Chapati Chef! #justeafarmers Impact Story #2

There are many people who are impacted by our tea partnership, even if they aren’t directly involved in handling the actual tea leaves! On this week’s #LiveFromKenya, Boaz introduces us to Lydia. Lydia shows us how to cook a delicious Kenyan staple… Chapati’s! Every weekday, Lydia provides nourishment for the workers at the Tumoi Tea factory by preparing lunch for them. Cooking chapati’s not only fills up the belly’s of #justeafarmers, it also provides Lydia and her baby daughter (Michelle) with a sustainable income.
When you drink JusTea, you support all the people in the Kenyan tea cycle, even chapati chefs like Lydia!
