Fairtrade Family Portrait – a new film series for students aged 7-14
From a wonderful family of cocoa farmers in Sierra Leone, to your family in the UK, we are delighted to bring you a brand new film series… It’s a Fairtrade Family Portrait!
New for the 2020-2021 academic year, Amie, Sidie, Lucia and Gbassay are back to help students learn what it means to be a Fairtrade farmer. From exploring the benefits of co-operatives to understanding how Fairtrade supports women’s empowerment, these four episodes contain everything you need to learn about Fairtrade at home or in the classroom.
What’s in each episode?
Episode 1: Amie’s Story encourages students to reflect on the importance of team work and learn how being part of a co-operative makes a difference to farmers.
Episode 2: Sidie’s Story helps students understand the Fairtrade Minimum Price and why transparent trade is important.
Episode 3: Lucia’s Story teaches students about the Fairtrade Standards and how they work to empower women in the community.
Episode 4: Gbassay’s Story teaches students about the Fairtrade Premium and how it supports children like Gbassay to access an education.
- Key words and definitions from each episode
