Our Work

Our desire is to continue to build relationships that create a better world and a better way of being and relating to each other. We are currently engaged in a beautiful friendship and partnership with the Yomol A’tel Cooperative which is constructed of several solidarity companies and we are creating relationships between the communities in Chiapas and our local communities here in Atlanta.

Live Better

Sustainable & Organic Products

Through our partnerships with the Yomol A’tel Cooperative and Innisor International, we have access to individual orders and wholesale accounts for the products from our friends in the Tseltal-Maya community in Chiapas! These products include artisanal organic single-origin coffee, organic sustainable honey, organic handmade soaps, and handmade embroidery.

Relate Better

Community & Relationship Development

Developing relationships between local and international communities is imperative to creating lasting impact in our own lives and in the world. We help connect local and international communities through participation in building a sustainable alternative economic model, project collaboration, and narrative. Schools, churches, coffee shops, coffee roasters, community centers and local small businesses are all part of our 1HC community.

Learn Better

Common Grounds: A Solidarity Education Program

Common Grounds is a new education initiative that centers learning in the context of a solidarity field-to-cup coffee economy. Learning takes place in “field classrooms” and focuses on collaborative inquiry, building local and global relationships, solving real world challenges, and participating in an alternative economic model seeking to create a more inclusive, just, and sustainable world.
