Celebrating World Fair Trade Day

Swahili Modern Blog and News

World Fair Trade Day is an initiative of WFTO that falls on the second Saturday of May of each year. The day is celebrated worldwide by all fair trade organizations, including the Fair Trade Federation to which Swahili Modern belongs.

Fair trade aims to "create positive change through all of its work: socially, economically, and environmentally. Members work with small farmers and artisans in holistic partnerships built on trust. These relationships go beyond ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions — they empower producers to strengthen their communities and grow their businesses sustainably."

Here's a great video that introduces the fair trade movement and why it matters:
