Fair Trade Assembly and Presentation by Christian Aid

Fair’s Fair – Primary School Assembly

Christian Aid’s February primary assembly is themed ‘Fair’s fair’ and encourages pupils to think about the global stories contained in our shopping bags and to understand fair trade as a positive step towards responsible shopping habits.

All of the food we eat has been made or grown by someone somewhere else.

The focus is on cocoa farmers in Ghana, who set up a cooperative to grow and sell their cocoa for a fair price. The money they earn helps to support community projects, such as building schools for their children.

We can help farmers from poorer countries trade their way out of poverty by buying products marked with the Fairtrade symbol.

Fair Trade Forever – Secondary School Assembly

‘Fair trade forever’ explores the global trading system and the role we all play as consumers within it. The focus is on cocoa farmers in Ghana, who set up a cooperative to grow and sell their cocoa for a fair price. The money they earn helps to support community projects, such as building schools for their children.

Of course, there are also farmers who make or grow things to sell locally, not abroad. Find out about a group of dairy farmers in Haiti who are receiving support so that their products can compete in the local marketplace with milk from Europe and the US.
