Your donation changes lives like Therese's.
Therese, who farms cocoa in Côte d'Ivoire, couldn't afford to go school herself. She's now working hard to make sure her children get an education and can build a better life. The better prices and fairer deal Fairtrade delivers are helping her do exactly that.
Sadly, Therese’s story is the exception. Right now, most farmers are still at the mercy of unpredictable market prices and accelerating climate crisis.
Too often, education, vital medical care and even clean water is still sacrificed because families simply can not afford it.
But with your help, we can change this. Anything you can give helps us strengthen Fairtrade around the world.
A stronger Fairtrade means more farmers getting Fairtrade’s guaranteed Minimum Price, a literal lifeline when market prices crash. And an extra Fairtrade Premium payment with their sales, which they can invest in the services they need, like education, environmental protection or clean water supplies.
A stronger Fairtrade also means more support, training and resources for farmers and workers struggling to deal with the effects of the climate crisis.
Over 1.66m million farmers and workers are already seeing the benefits of Fairtrade. We can do even more, but only with your support. Chip in to give farmers and workers real opportunities to escape poverty.
Donate monthly – Join the Fairtrade movement
Fairtrade helps some of the poorest communities in the world trade their way out of poverty. We’ve seen this happen across the world over the past 25 years, but we know it doesn’t happen overnight.
Making a regular donation helps us offer long-term support to farmers, as they take up the long-term project of producing to Fairtrade’s high ethical and quality standards.
Your donations allow us to offer training programmes, business development opportunities and projects like our Women’s School of Leadership, working hard with us to change the global system and escape poverty.
The Fairtrade Foundation
The Fairtrade Foundation is part of Fairtrade International, a group of charities, producer networks and workers groups from around the world committed to a fairer deal for those producing the food and products we use every day.
Our priorities are set by those farmers and workers signing up to Fairtrade. So you know your donation will provide those communities with the opportunities and support they need most.
