This June during the Covid 19 pandemic I applied to participate as a World Literacy Foundation Ambassador with the World Literacy Foundation.
My application was successful.
Congratulations to all #WLFAmbassadors2020.
This month I continued to heal from surgery.
Participated in Zero Waste Week 2020.
Continued learning about literacy on the prestigious World Literacy Foundation Ambassador 2020 Program and
visited the Makers Market West Didsbury, Manchester.
This month I visited The Makers Market West Didsbury, Manchester.
It was a beautiful Sunday morning and I headed over to Nell Lane, West Didsbury with my sister Irem.
I surprised to see so many wonderful artisan stalls selling bespoke hand crafted items.
This is my humble effort to reduce my plastic consumption and waste for Zero Waste Week 2020.
I've been very poorly this year and hope to support the Zero Waste movement with zest and vigour next year.
This is my summary about how I am consciously trying to live a fair trade ethical life.
This blog illustrates the small steps I have taken to live a life free of clutter, materialism and throw away society.
It has been a natural progression from fair trade campaigner, educator and social entrepreneur to ethical consumer.
During the last week of Ramadan, June/July 2016 on a hot bright sunny morning I took a flight to Beirut, Lebanon.
I'd never been to an International Fair Trade Towns Conference but was excited to know that I would be representing the United Arab Emirates.
So here I am for the eighth consecutive year participating in the Six Items Challenge 2020 with Labour Behind The Label.
This year the challenge commenced 26th February - 9th April 2020.
During the fashion fast my beloved grandmother returned to her maker, the world faced Covid 19, I had surgery for a ruptured cyst and observed Lockdown to protect key workers.
Congratulations to all the Sixers and everyone who supported garment workers at this critical time.
For the past 30 years I have lived with Endometriosis and PCOS.
This is my personal insight of living with Endometriosis and PCOS.
Most female social entrepreneurs I know are multi talented, ambitious and innovative.
I feel blessed to be a member of an exclusive club of makers and doers. All action, brain storming, endless ethical learning, strategy and conversations.
I love that part of my life!
However, there is a part of my life that most people don't know about.
The days where I can't get out of bed, struggle to get household chores done and don't have the energy to answer emails, WhatsApp messages or call family.
This is my reality most days of the week but you would never know looking at me.

This is a brief summary of my fairtrade activities and campaigns in the United Arab Emirates spanning 2009 to 2020.
I celebrated Fairtrade Fortnight and International Women's Day 2020 Dubai, UAE with my sister Irem.
This year the Fairtrade Foundation UK's campaign is all about the women, who grow the cocoa in the chocolate. The hashtag is #SHEDESERVES.
I was so pleased to learn about the House of Commons UK also supports Fairtrade Fortnight 2020.
