Fairtrade – Sit down for breakfast and stand up for farmers

With the annual Fairtrade Fortnight starting on Monday it was good to welcome to this week’s show Caryl Kwei from the Brentwood Fairtrade Steering Group.

As well as talking generally about Fairtrade Caryl explained how she had witnessed first hand how lives in a cocoa growing area of Kenya have been changed for the better by a Fairtrade co-operative. She also encouraged people to take part in Fairtrade Fortnight by hosting a breakfast to promote the work and in particular this year’s theme – standing up for farmers in the developing world.

If you’d like to get involved by organising a breakfast – large or small – visit the website.
