Fair trade forever: February 2014 assembly and presentation
Theme: Fairtrade
Country: Ghana, Haiti
Children at school

Our February assembly explores the global trading system and the role we all play as consumers within it.

This assembly focuses on cocoa farmers in Ghana, who set up a cooperative to grow and sell their cocoa for a fair price. The money they earn helps to support community projects, such as building schools for their children.

Of course, there are also farmers who make or grow things to sell locally, not abroad. Find out about a group of dairy farmers in Haiti who are receiving support so that their products can compete in the local marketplace with milk from Europe and the US.
