ECHOES' partner project, Trinity Children's Centre, takes center stage in the TV show, "Dangerous Grounds," airing Tuesday, Feb. 25.  at 9 p.m. EST on the Travel Channel. In an episode that takes place entirely in Uganda, host Todd Carmichael visits Trinity, the school he and his coffee company, La Colombe, have long supported, and vows to help build a new boys dormitory to replace the one destroyed by fire.  He decides to source a Ugandan coffee for client Dean and Deluca to raise money for the project and  journeys to coffee farms in search of the perfect beans.

And that's when things get mighty interesting. According to the Travel Channel's website, Todd will "run into cultural obstacles" that "confound all efforts."  As a result, "he must enter a blood contract to sustain the school."  Sure sounds exciting, folks!  Be sure to tune in...

And don't forget to buy La Colombe's Afrique coffee (available at Whole Foods Markets) to help support Trinity!
