OUR CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PROJECTS
BULWARK a wall built for protection or defense. The Bulwark Project is a corporate socially responsible effort focused on the aid, and prosperity of children in economically disadvantaged rural areas in Ecuador. The program’s initial phase will take place in Tarifa, a small town near Samborondon-Ecuador. This will serve as a pilot project for future expansion throughout Ecuador. We will combine as a case study martial arts and psychological therapy, through martial arts the children will gain physical strength and mental discipline, while relying on psychological therapy to interact with the children to overcome any problems they are facing in a desired way. The Bulwark Project is an initiative by Bjj Tripping, an online Jiu Jitsu community, and with the collaboration of us as Wild Coffee, JJAA, Andean Mountain Coffee NY, and a team of professionals have all joined together to bring forth this initiative. The value and importance of Bulwark is in the development of a child’s self-esteem. Our main objective is to inspire the children to believe in themselves, and provide them with the tools to achieve their goals. We will assigned 10% from our local Supermarket sales in Ecuador and 7% of the EXW price from exports.
