A poor man's field may produce an abundant harvest but injustice sweeps it away.
Traidcraft is a Christian-based organisation and what we believe is at the heart of our desire to see justice for poor people. In the 19th century, the church played a central role in bringing an end to the slave trade.
Our role in making fair trade the widespread and well-known phenomenon it is today has been no less significant. For many years it was the lone voices of Christians holding a Traidcraft stall in their church and asking for fair trade in their supermarkets who were the backbone of the growing Fairtrade movement.
Today, fair trade is a global movement, well-established in the mainstream and available in many shops and outlets, and for that we thank God.
It truly is transforming the lives of millions of poor people. But the job is not done! The church's role is as significant today as it ever was as dedicated fair trade organisations like Traidcraft fight to bring the benefits to those who need it the most and to expand fair trade into new areas.
Traidcraft is proud to partner with Back to Church Sunday, the Meaningful Chocolate Company and More Than Gold to support UK mission initiatives. Click on the logo to find out more about how we're involved.
