How Fair Trade Has Made a Difference
Each year, Jardines Piaveri workers design community programs to be funded by the Fair Trade premiums. Past programs include helping the elderly seniors of the local parish or of neighboring towns. The workers in charge of the premium collaborated with the church in Guaytacama—where 85 percent of Jardines Piaveri’s workers live—to donate 50 school chairs for children in the area. Many of the children are sons and daughters of the workers who also attend religious classes at the church.
