Take the rice challenge

Fairtrade Fortnight 21 Feb – 06 March is a time to stand up for the producers of our food, drink, clothes etc who are overworked, underpaid and often exploited.  If you would like an activity to do during this fortnight then please consider the 90kg Rice Challenge.  Get your family, friends, neighbours and community involved and see how many bags of rice you can sell in order to help small holder farmers in Malawi work their way out of poverty with dignity and empower them to provide a secondary education for their children.
