Fair Trade Producers cry for help


This project will purchase raw materials for 100 disadvantaged single mothers to produce finished hand made fair trade products, such as baskets, ladies bags, and jewelry. This request will help them get a livelihood by putting food on the table and pay school fees for their children, and help them to save money for their future. Training these producers on the 10 principles of fair trade will be key for project sustainability
