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

Odylique 3 in 1 Maca Mask and Balancing Citrus Super Tonic review with Sabeena Ahmed

As a fairtrade campaigner I believe it is my duty to support fairtrade organisations using fairtrade ingredients in their products and for this reason I have searched long and hard for products that suit my acne reactive skin.

I am relieved to have found a mask that works for my skin.

I apply the Odylique 3 in 1 Maca Mask to my skin every 4-5 days which is particularly helpful before you feel a cystic bump appear before your menstrual cycle.
