The Autumn term has begun, and here at Fairtrade we have been busy over the summer creating new activities, games and stories to share with you over the next few months.
As Autumn sets in it is time to trade our summer ice creams for something a bit more warming. Spices like ginger and cinnamon have long been used to keep the chills at bay, but also taste delicious.
These spices come from far away, such as ginger from Sri Lanka and nutmeg from India, and are often grown on small family farms, by farmers who rely on their spices to make a living. Fairtrade is helping those farmers to make a more secure living.
This term, we are asking you to bake some gingerbread, and sell it at your Christmas Fayre to help us raise money to bring Fairtrade to more farmers and workers. This means we can challenge unfair trade and ensure farmers get to a place where they can feed and educate their children and look forward to an independent future.
There are many different spices in gingerbread, and within the pack you can find out about the farmers in India, Sri Lanka, Madagascar and beyond who grow the spices we enjoy.
Get ahead of the crowd and order your pack now – it contains a recipe for Fairtrade gingerbread, an assembly, ideas for decorating your stall and a fun board game all about Fairtrade gingerbread.
So get involved, order your pack and get ready to bake a difference!
