Kenco Helps Children One Coffee Bean at a Time in New Spot Cut by Whitehouse Post

UK coffee brand Kenco takes on the gang epidemic in Honduras with a cinematic new :60 cut by Whitehouse Post Editor John Smith via JWT London.

Directed by RSA’s Johnny Hardstaff, the daring spot sheds light on a real social issue in Honduras, a country which reportedly has some of the world’s most dangerous slums. The spot is part of a new Kenco “Coffee vs Gangs” initiative that aims to target 20 young people in order to help them receive the education and training necessary to become coffee farmers.
