Learn more @Drinktîmatea The Founder and CEO of 3 Mountains, Sara Stender, was drawn to Rwanda - “Land of a Thousand Hills” - when she learned of the 1994 Genocide and she finally made her way there to live in 2009. During that time she experienced the gifts and beauty of the nation and its people and Sara continues to call it her African home. Sara has been working with farmers, producers and artisans in Rwanda to help grow the markets in North America for their world-class products.
This limited liability company officially launched in July, 2016, in Asheville, North Carolina. Sara has been researching, testing and getting to know products, producers and artisans from the African Great Lakes Region over many years and has decided to focus on specialty tea from Rwanda to begin. Customers will have access to additional product categories from the same region over the next year.
3 Mountains works closely with 501c3 social sector organization, Africa Healing Exchange (AHE), offering culturally-appropriate solutions to help end the cycle of trauma and to share skills for economic empowerment. By partnering with genocide survivors and their families in Rwanda, we are creating an innovative and sustainable model to be replicated throughout Africa and the world, for greater resilience and harmonious living.
