Fair Trade Lebanon gave two conferences to students (aging from 9 till 13 years old) at the school of Saint-Coeur Kfarhbab! Our conferences revolved around the theme of Lebanese food-processing cooperatives and Fair Trade as a means for rural development.
We've discussed in detail how cooperatives work: the nature of their activity, the products they prepare, their location as well as their strengths and everyday challenges.
We've also introduced the principles of Fair Trade and the role that FTL plays as a link between small rural producers and consumers!
The audience was delighted! they are now eager to go visit and meet directly with the producers!
We will renew this experience real soon!
