Sustainable Coffee Bay’s High School Scholarship Program was the brain child of Coffee Shack Backpackers. In 2011, Sustainable Coffee Bay was registered as the non profit organisation that took over Coffee Shack’s Community Projects. To this day, we maintain a close relationship with our original founders and discovered these wonderful stories in our archives. Please enjoy our short quarterly student tales..
