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

Happy New Year to all my fair trade friends and family around the world.

My right shoulder is still very painful and inflamed again and I have struggled to type this blog.

Despite my pain I managed to attend a webinar and record videos about PIE Community members expressing an interest to join.

I joined a couple of sessions about Mental Health and Suicide Training.

These sessions were organised by THRIVE LDN.
