Fair Trade Coffee Morning - Home Grown Children's Eco Nursery Dubai

 

One bright and beautiful Sunday morning, 7th February 2016 to be precise. I and my merry fair trade supporters Saima and Fred visited the Home Grown Children's Eco Nursery.

 

Saima and I had prepared cupcakes, granola and chocolate chip cookies for the parents (mothers) of the children.

Visit to the Home Grown Children's Eco Nursery Dubai, November 2015 by Sabeena Ahmed and The Little Fair Trade Shop

I would like to thank Lucy Bruce, her staff and all the Mums who took time out of their busy days to learn about the fairtrade movement in the United Arab Emirates.

I hope Lucy and her team will contemplate obtaining fairtrade status to become the first fairtrade nursery in the United Arab Emirates.

If you would like more information about supporting fairtrade at your nursery, school, college or university please do not hesitate to contact me for a chat and fairtrade coffee.

Warmest regards

Sabeena

World Fair Trade Day 2024, ۲۰۲۴ ورلڈ فیئر ٹریڈ ڈے with Sabeena Z Ahmed

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

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

This year I was unable to record a video in English or Urdu but did manage to handwrite a poster in English and Urdu.

Translation in Urdu

اس سال عالمی منصفانہ تجارت کا دن 11 مئی 2024 کو منایا گیا۔

ورلڈ فیئر ٹریڈ آرگنائزیشن (WFTO) کا تھیم ''بزنس ریوولوٹن'' تھا۔

اس سال میں انگریزی یا اردو میں ویڈیو ریکارڈ  نہیں کر سکی لیکن انگریزی اور اردو میں پوسٹر ہاتھ سے لکھنے میں کامیاب رہی۔

This World Cancer Day 2024 I  hand wrote the poster in Urdu and English and posted it to my Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn Profiles.

I attended a sisters only art therapy workshop with my sister Irem, this workshop was organised by The Muslim Bereavement Support Service.

Due to my own going shoulder issues I have struggled with my right shoulder to type this blog has been painful to type.

اس ورلڈ کینسر ڈے 2024 میں میں نے ہاتھ سے پوسٹر اردو اور انگریزی میں لکھا اور اسے اپنے X، Facebook اور LinkedIn پروفائلز پر پوسٹ کیا۔

میں نے اپنی بہن ارم کے ساتھ ایک سسٹرس اونلی آرٹ تھراپی ورکشاپ میں شرکت کی، یہ ورکشاپ دی مسلم بیریومنٹ سپورٹ سروس نے منعقد کی تھی۔

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۔
