“Ethical Trading”. “Fair Trade”, “Fairtrade”. What does it all mean?
When you see the “FairTrade” symbol, we can be sure that producers have been offered higher “fairer” wages in a better working condition. It also takes into account care of the environment and generally creates the opportunity for producers to take control over their position in the process.
Nangi is an uncertified producers group that is inspired by fair trade ethics, our main focus is mobilizing the community to act locally. In the paper making instance, we can contribute financially to the local secondary school. This not only creates opportunities for rural children to attend, but provides the facilities for local adults to further their education online. One example of this is a nursing training.
Ethical trading is a name for what trade should essentially be about. It is a tool for community development and can be used anywhere in the world!
