This year I organised World Fair Trade Day at the inspirational Home Grown Children's Eco Nursery, Dubai and the United Arab Emirates with the support of a few friends.

The very delicious fair trade cakes were baked my dear friend Saima. The frosting contained Green & Blacks Maya Gold and 70% Dark Chocolate.

I also raised the profile of fair trade producers by setting up a stall for parents and conducted a fair trade photo shoot with children and parents to show support for fair trade cotton farmers Agrocel (India) and SEKEM (Egypt).
