Christmas gift ideas – just give FAIR gifts this year!

Yes, happy faces can be recognized by their casual smile. These women are really proud of themselves, of their work and of their community. They pick and grow coffee. You have finally discovered the winning streak and it’s called Fair Trade. It is a rapidly expanding alternative to conventional world trade.

It is more about a trade with a human face. It is only acted on a high moral and ethical level – without middlemen, without fraud and without child labor. The guaranteed minimum price and the fair trade premium give the smallholders and workers who form cooperatives a realistic chance of a better life. In this way, the communities get enough funds to build schools and hospitals. Fair Trade finally helps people in developing countries to break the vicious circle of poverty. The children no longer need to work. They can go to school and enjoy their childhood the way they should.

Parents work much more motivated and hopeful than they used to be
