Traidcraft Exchange is Traidcraft’s partner development charity. It works with partners in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, running programmes to support people working in different supply chains. When people in low-income countries receive training in proven business skills – to add to their natural will to succeed – they can turn a profit from the work they do, and use it to feed their families and educate their children.
They can build a better future for their families and their communities – for generations to come. That’s what Traidcraft Exchange is all about.
Until 11th April 2018, all donations made to Traidcraft Exchange will be matched by the UK government, so your donation is doubled.
On the first Friday of March every year, Christian women around the world invite everyone to join in a Service on a theme prepared by women in one part of the world; for this year the material has been written by Christian women in Suriname on the theme
“All God’s creation is very good”.
See local media for a service in your area.
The fortnight runs from 26th February to 11th March. Buy goods from your Church’s Fairtrade stall as well as fairly traded goods from charity shops and supermarkets.
