I returned to Dubai 13th May with a heavy heart after fulfilling duties for my mothers funeral.
World Fair Trade Day would be celebrated around the world and I wanted Dubai and the United Arab Emirates to be represented.
I decided to ask my friends for their assistance and Lucy Bruce, Fikra, Saima, Fred and Sophia happily obliged.
Here is a link to behind the scenes with Adam, Sophie and Mum Anita.
Saima baked a beautiful World Fair Trade Cake and Fred took photographs of the events.
Lucy Bruce Director of Education at the Home Grown Children's Eco Nursery, Ailsa and Lisa were very supportive. Staff and parents graciously allowed me to conduct two photo shoots one for World Fair Trade Day and one with children and babies to launch my fairtrade children's organic range.
I am extremely grateful to Lucy, Ailsa, all the Mums who waited patiently for their photo shoots and all the stars of the show the little fair trade ambassadors. Many thanks to everyone who supported fair trade farmers Agrocel, SEKEM, The Little Green Radicals, Best Years, Pebble Toys and Under The Nile.
I have attached Behind The Scenes at The Home Grown Children's Eco Nursery of Marcus and Mum for you to all view at your leisure.

August 1st 2017 marks my mother’s 65th birthday.
My beloved mother was a ‘courageous woman, she was my first school of thought, love, compassion and my paradise.’
Mum was an extraordinarily humble, kind and charismatic lady.
She could strike up a conversation with anyone. An empathetic listener, amazing chef and gardener, she possessed a sharp wit and humour that would instantly lift your spirits.
This month I was I was approached by Ellen van Dongen of the Responsible Shopping Dubai website and asked if The Little Fair Trade Shop would like to be featured. I said YES!
Attended my first Dubai Vegan Meet Up, continued with my Who Made My Clothes course and was diagnosed with a painful frozen shoulder.
I spent most of August 2016 with my siblings in London and mustered the energy to board a train to historical York to visit Shared Earth and talk with founder and owner Jeremy Piercy.
Many thanks to David Piercy for his time and support during my visit.
