We as a Church at Fairhaven Methodist have been a supporter of Traidcraft for over 10 years.
Traidcraft sells many quality Fairtrade products from trading partners who are community based enterprises and associations of smallholder farms. As well as paying fair prices, Traidcraft can give access to credit, allowing producers to buy raw materials, and give support through training programmes. Traidcraft buys from around 100 groups in over 30 countries.
Many food and gift items can be purchased through a catalogue, which is availble from a representative at Church. By buying these products we are enabling the producers to get a fair price for their goods and help them to look after their families by feeding their children and letting them get a good education.
