Even to this day, over a billion people are living in extreme poverty. Over 60% of employees in developing countries are living on or below the poverty line. This can be read in the UN Millenium Goals Report of June 2013.
The Fairtrade Town campaign tries to create a world where everyone gets a fair chance. By stimulating fair trade, producers in developing countries are enabled to improve their lives and their futures. Almost 2 million producers work under fair trade conditions. Because of this, over 6 million people’s lives are improved by the effects. It’s important to use increasingly more fairtrade products, in both shops but also as a caterer. Fairtrade Town campaign tries to unite demand and supply.
TOBACCO Theater works along with Fairtrade Town campaign to make this happen!
