Tackling homelessness with coffee: interview with Cemal Ezel, founder of Change Please

Thematic Month: Homelessness

Change Please, backed by the founder of the Big Issue magazine, started with an observation: Londoners love coffee. And coffee could make a difference. After having trained homeless people as baristas, the organisation provides them with a temporary accommodation and a job: selling ethically-sourced coffee in the streets.
