BBC Radio Cornwall presenter Naomi Rowe has travelled to Rwanda with the BBC's Heaven & Earth Show to look into Fairtrade in the country.
Lives have been dramatically turned around by the Fairtrade Federation - an association of fair trade wholesalers, retailers, and producers whose members are committed to providing fair wages and good employment opportunities to economically disadvantaged artisans and farmers worldwide.
A cooperative set up a year after the genocide only included a few hundred people, but now thousands of people have all joined in to get a far price for their coffee.
The money generated by the advent of Fair Trade has allowed schools to be built, better medical facilities to be set up - all allowing the a more prosperous and stable future ahead.
Naomi is visiting the south of the country near Butare reporting on how Fairtrade is helping to rebuild a country devastated by genocide in 1994.
