Six Items Challenge 2016

Hello and Assalaam Alaikum everyone,

Thank you for dropping by.

So here I am for the fifth consecutive year participating in the Six Items Challenge with Labour Behind The Label.

Why I'm here?

I have decided to participate and support the Six Item Challenge for the fifth year because I care about the millions of countless individuals producing clothes and accessories in factories and workshops around the world.

This year I hope to support fair trade certified cotton farmers and producers.

Hopefully by the end of the Six Week Challenge I would have educated a few people and raised a few pounds/dirhams.

What you can do?

Every little helps and your donation will provide Labour Behind The Label the opportunity to raise awareness about the rights of factory workers and improve their wages and working conditions.
