Fair Trade Breaks Poverty and Anti-Poverty Week in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates

Fair Trade Breaks Poverty and Anti-Poverty Week in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates

Fair Trade Breaks Poverty

Anti-poverty Week in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates

This week marks the beginning of anti-poverty week and I asked my good friends around Dubai to support the World Fair Trade Organizations campaign Fair Trade = No Poverty.

Using the concept of ‘Agent for Change’ (Fair Trade as an agent for change), WFTO’s formula to eradicate poverty: 

Fair Trade + Economic Opportunities = No Poverty  

For the campaign, the icons of Fair Trade Principle 1 and SDG goal 1 were implemented to represent the formula of change.

Saima Tahqiq and Me!

 

The World Fair Trade Organization started its global observance of anti-poverty week and asked other fairtraders to share their photographs.
