KidGlov, a marketing and advertising agency based in Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., recently hosted Patty Connor, CEO of Our Gorongosa, on its podcast, Agency for Change. The episode explores the Certified B Corp and how it donates 100% of specialty coffee profits to support girls’ education, wildlife conservation and rainforest deforestation.
“Our Gorongosa is an incredible organization,” said Lyn Wineman, president and chief strategist of KidGlov. “People like Patty Connor and organizations like Our Gorongosa are revolutionizing business models and setting a great example for organizations to have more impact in their communities.”
Our Gorongosa produces specialty coffee blends grown by local farmers in the heart of Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique. As a direct impact business, Our Gorongosa produces coffee using generative practices that support the community, environment and local economy in Mozambique. With every purchase, 100% of proceeds support programs for girls in Gorongosa National Park, rainforest restoration, and wildlife preservation.
“At Our Gorongosa, with every bag of coffee you buy, 100% of the proceeds go back to supporting these farmers, the community, the environment and the local economy where the coffee is grown,” Connor said. “So that’s pretty powerful, and that resonates with a lot of people. We’re hoping our success paves the way for more of these business models to exist, and what we’re trying to do is is to build a more inclusive and regenerative global economy.
The Agency for Change podcast explores Our Gorongosa’s commitment to his community, his journey to becoming a certified B Corp, and Connor’s personal philosophies in leading a purpose-driven organization.
