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.
