Fair Trade Graduates with Honors
Have you or your children just finished another school year? Did you graduate this spring? Either way – We congratulate you! Perhaps you had a special professor, caring advisor, dedicated family member, or loyal friend who helped you along the way. Fair Trade provides help and support to students and their families all around the globe, building schools, funding scholarships, and making school supplies available in 60 different countries. Brazilian coffee cooperative Unipcafem provides school uniforms to all the community’s children and coats to those most in need so they may be comfortable and warm during the school day. Fair Trade premiums paid for a computer lab and subsidized classes for people of all ages. And in Paraguay, sugar cane farmers from Coopertiva El Arroyense voted to use Fair Trade premiums to purchase books, uniforms, and a computer for their school. They created a tutoring project to benefit learning-disabled students to make sure all children in their community had the same chance at success. If you have a happy graduate, proud parent, or hardworking teacher to celebrate, consider honoring them with a Gift of Fairness. Your support of TransFair USA and Fair Trade helps provide educational opportunities for farmer families in almost 60 countries around the world.
