میرا نام سبینہ ہے۔
یہ ورلڈ فیئر ٹریڈ کے لیے میرا پیغام ہے۔
Ramadan and Eid Mubarak to all my friends, family and fairtrade producers around the world!
This is my blog summarising my effort to support fairtrade producers and artisans during the blessed month of Ramadan and Eid ul Fitr 2023.
This year my right shoulder has been very painful and prevented me from creating vlogs and blogs about Fair Trade in Islam.
On a positive note I tried to post a fair trade product every day during Ramadan and Eid ul Fitr 2023 with translations in English and Urdu.
Apologies in advance for any errors in the Urdu translation.
یہ میرا بلاگ ہے جو رمضان کے بابرکت مہینے میں فیئر ٹریڈ پروڈیوسروں اور دستکاروں کی مدد کرنے کی میری کوششوں کا خلاصہ کرتا ہے۔
اس سال میرے داہنے کندھے میں بہت تکلیف ہوئی اور اس نے مجھے اسلام میں فیئر ٹریڈ کے بارے میں بلاگ اور بلاگ بنانے سے روک دیا۔
اردو ترجمہ میں غلطیوں کے لیے پیشگی معذرت۔

اس سال میں نے مشہور ورلڈ پلس چینج میکر لیب 2022 پروگرام میں درخواست دی۔ مجھے قبول کر لیا گیا۔
This year's International Women's Day campaign was about embracing equity.
Sadly my right shoulder has been very painful and didn't receive the World Fair Trade Organization tool kit in time and designed my own IWD23 poster.
I decided to write my poster in English and Urdu.
I hope I can record a video for next year.
اس سال خواتین کے عالمی دن کی مہم مساوات کو اپنانے کے بارے میں تھی۔
افسوس کی بات ہے کہ میرا دایاں کندھا بہت تکلیف دہ رہا ہے اور مجھے ورلڈ فیئر ٹریڈ آرگنائزیشن ٹول کٹ بروقت نہیں ملی اور میں نے اپنا IWD23 پوسٹر ڈیزائن کیا۔
میں نے اپنا پوسٹر انگریزی اور اردو میں لکھنے کا فیصلہ کیا۔
مجھے امید ہے کہ میں اگلے سال کے لیے ایک ویڈیو ریکارڈ کر سکوں گا۔

I'm a fairtrade campaigner, educator and social entrepreneur.
Here is is my message for International Women's Day 2021!
2015 was an exciting time in my life as I worked to complete my first professional website.
With my friend and talented Creative Director Helen Barlow Scott, we worked diligently to design The Little Fair Trade Stamps which would be included in the launch of The Little Fair Trade Shop website Quarter 1, 2016.
In this blog I explain what each stamp means and introduce you to a fairtrade producer who has aligned their business to implement and promote a living wage, decent working conditions, transparency and accountability, empowerment, environmental sustainability, dignity and self respect for all.
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.
I was so excited and anxious to display all the beautiful WFTO certified products at Safa Park Dubai.
