In 2009, actor Hugh Jackman traveled to Ethiopia as an ambassador for World Vision. Hugh wanted to visit a
community development project to see how rural communities were being empowered to eradicate poverty.

While there, Hugh met a 27-year-old coffee farmer named Dukale working to lift his family out of poverty. Spending time on Dukale's farm, Hugh learned first-hand about the value of fair trade coffee. The visit inspired Hugh to launch Laughing Man Coffee & Tea to provide a marketplace for farmers like Dukale to sell their goods across the U.S.A.

Dukale's Dream shares this inspiring story.
