Hello, Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening fairtrade friends and supporters. Thanks for stopping by.
I was invited to teach fairtrade to a group of 25 children at the Star International School, Mirdif, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The children were enthusiastic and eager to learn about fairtrade.
I decided to introduce the banana supply chain and used role play cards for them to understand and emphasise with the difficulties and challenges faced by farmers and banana workers.
I introduced the following videos which the children enjoyed watching.
Many thanks to the parents, Senior teacher Joy and the children who purchased fair trade products from The Little Fair Trade Shop Ltd Stall and helped to raise 620AED for the fairtrade producers in Nepal.
I would like to thank Ms Hibo Hussein for devoting her entire Sunday to support me in my first fairtrade teaching endeavour with children Dubai.
Endless thanks to Bruce Crowther, Rita Verity and Christina Longden for writing letters of support for The Little Fair Trade Shop Ltd and the Fairtrade movement of the United Arab Emirates.
I will continue to work hard and establish a fairtrade schools, colleges and universities network.
Thank you for reading and supporting fairtrade and ethical producers wherever you live.
Warmest regards and love,
