Celebrate the #WomenOfFairTrade in your enterprise and community who choose to challenge. They create opportunities, overcome barriers, support communities, take a stand and set an example? Let's make them visible!

The True Cost movie was a thoroughly, thought provoking and sensitive documentary film that leaves you stunned, giving an insight into the effects of industry in developing countries, their working conditions and what these people have to endure to survive. Safia shows that everything can be done differently. .See here>
