TILE 1: Educational Support
Somage is committed to making a better world through the ethical trade of sustainable, best-in-class products. We recognise the critical importance of education in raising the well-being and standard of living for tea estate workers and their children. As a result, Somage provides scholarships and financial contributions for the purchase of schooling materials and Internet access.
TILE 2: Medical Support
Somage believes good health is the right of all people. We recognise the critical importance of having access to expert medical advice and assistance. To facilitate the health and well-being of Ahinsa tea estate workers, Somage subsidises access to medical practitioners and supplies.
TILE 3: Grower Support
Somage recognises the importance of paying a fair price to farmers for their efforts. We also believe that ethical trade and producing the highest quality products are complementary pursuits. By paying premiums for leaf quality, Somage is able to give more directly to farmers, whilst increasing trade and fetching higher sale prices at market. Somage also created a green leaf tea quality competition, offering monetary prizes to growers who produce the highest quality leaf.
