Guardians of the Rainforest

 

‘Guardians of the Rainforest’  is about the cocoa farmers who are working together to protect the Gola Rainforest in Sierra Leone, West Africa. The story is told by 14-year-old Beshey, whose family have been cocoa farmers for generations.

The film is 12 minutes 51 seconds and there is a shorter version (4 minutes) here. We would recommend the longer version for a KS3 lesson about forest friendly farming and environmental protection.

Although many of us cannot be together in schools right now, we can still learn about Fairtrade together at home. Get in touch to tell us about your activities via email (schools@fairtrade.org.uk) or Twitter. Please tag @FairtradeUKEd and use the hashtag #FairtradeTogether on social media posts!
