Traidcraft - February 2019
Imagine if no matter how hard you worked today, you couldn't afford to put food on the table.
For millions of people around the world, that's the reality they face. A fair income gives you freedom, security and hope for the future. It allows you to feed your family and educate your children. That is the power of trade done well.
But unfair trade amplifies poverty. It makes the rich richer and leaves the poor behind.
Traidcraft Exchange exists to do two things...
- To support people to harness the benefits of trade
- To fight against injustice in global trade
It's a simple mission, but it is changing lives all over the world. As you know, Traidcraft has been downsized and many items will not now be available to buy.
What does this mean for us in Minchinhampton?
We will continue to hold monthly stalls for the foreseeable future....although the range of items may be reduced.
Our next will be on Sunday February 17th in the porch room after the 10am service.
Thank you for continuing to support Traidcraft.
