In my opinion, Fair Trade is very good because for just a few cents the consumer can have a large impact on us workers and the community in which we live. As a producer, Fair Trade has brought us significant benefits because when we comply with the Fair Trade standard, we are improving the way we work to not only produce higher quality products, but to also be socially responsible and better stewards of the environment. ”

We hope to continue to develop projects that promote educational opportunities because we believe one of the best ways to teach values is through schooling. Through educational programs, there is potential to reach the entire community. ”

Investing in Community Soccer
Fair Trade premiums were used to purchase new equipment for students of the Costa De Araujo Soccer School. Funding enabled the purchase of new soccer balls, cones and uniforms.
School Facility Improvements and Supplies
Fair Trade premiums have funded local school building improvements. Construction projects include closing the gas tank, fencing the perimeter, a new sandbox for children, the purchase of tiles to repair the basketball court, and new paint. Premiums also helped purchase new recreational items like balls, gym mats and swings.
Shoes for School Children
Fair Trade premiums purchased shoes for workers' children who attend the Combate Pichueta School. Without assistance from the Joint Body, deprived children would be shoeless throughout the school year.
