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 enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives. This will most certainly be an extremely rewarding trip, and we sincerely thank Dr. Erinn Ransom, professor of Africana Studies at Asheshi University, for her invitation.
In perfect peace.
