WE ARE LIVE!

Hello and Assalaam Alaikum fair trade friends and supporters.

It's seems like a very long seven years ago when I first decided I wanted to start my own fair trade business. With much trepidation and excitement, tears of joy and laughter, here I am re-launching The Little Fair Trade website.

 

I am truly blessed to fulfil a life time ambition and am humbled that the Fair Trade industries finest pioneers and actors have supported my work in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.

It's been a wonderful learning curve, I'm still learning!

Please enjoy the behind the scenes to our re-launch.


The list is long so I'll keep it short and sweet.

Sincere regards and best wishes to all my Fair Trade producers who supported me when I had nothing.

This year the World Fair Trade Day was observed on the 11th May 2024.

The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) theme was ''Business Revolution.''

میرے اپنے کندھے کے مسائل کی وجہ سے میں نے اپنے دائیں کندھے سے ٹائپ کرنے کے لئے جدوجہد کی ہے اس بلاگ کو ٹائپ کرنا تکلیف دہ رہا ہے۔
