Villa Real School have been raising awareness of ‘Fairtrade’. For two weeks each year in February and March individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to think about the people who grow our food and drinks, mine our gold and who grow the cotton in our clothes, people who are often exploited, underpaid and even work in dangerous conditions. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us more than ever how interconnected we are globally. This interconnection is at the very heart of the Fairtrade message and is where our role as a school community begins. We all have the power to drive long-term change, not only with our shopping choices but also with spreading the message.
If everyone bought one item on our shopping list with a Fairtrade logo, we can be part of a solution to change the lives of others. Children will be able to go to school instead of working and plan for a better future.
Thank you from Villa Real School
