Teaching fair trade at the Manor Primary School, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Teaching fair trade at the Manor Primary School, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

I was invited by Manor Primary School and children of Year 5 to talk about fair trade.

We started the lesson by watching the Max Havelaar Chocolate Song.

The world in my shopping basket - children learnt where fair trade products came from.

Year 5 tasted fairtrade Divine Milk Chocolate and Green & Blacks Maya Gold.

The children watched a fairtrade video about Tayna a young girl who visited cocoa farmers and their communities in the Dominican Republic.

Children learnt about the fair price, social premium, social standards and the environment.

The children showed their support for fair trade and we ended the session with lots of happy memories. 

I hope they will be the future fair trade stars and campaigners in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.
