Prayer Theme- Fair Trade
24th February to 8th March it is Fairtrade Fortnight and the focus for our prayer theme this week.
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.
By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It allows them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
