Fair Trade Trip to Ghana April 2023
May be an image of one or more people and outdoors
I wonder how many of you know of the Fair Trade Triangle relationship we have with Garstang UK, the First Fair Trade Town in the world, and New Koforidua in Ghana, Africa’s First Fair Trade Town. As a way to support Fair Trade cocoa growers in Ghana, folks in the UK started a non profit social enterprise to support Chocolate Has A Name, an effort to teach girls in schools in Ghana to make chocolate from the cocoa grown there. We would love for folks from Media to attend their first excursion from April 4 to April 11 2023. Check out the details here.
Media Fair Trade Committee Needs an Executive Director
If you like your work to make a positive impact in the lives of less fortunate individuals and have good administrative skills, we have a position for you. You would be working with a wonderful group of dedicated volunteers including our board of directors. It requires good computer skills and a friendly manner, and would be managing volunteer efforts, communications, spearheading projects and seeing them through to their conclusions.
