In celebration of World Fair Trade Day on May 8, Moral Fairground presents World Fair Trade Day #BuildBackFairer - Fair Trade Around The World, Columbia on Thursday May 6. This year, the World Fair Trade Organisation is promoting the #BuildBackFairer movement to encourage governments, communities and the world to rebuild their economies ethically and sustainably. “The Fair Trade movement has a solution. To rising inequality, to entrenched poverty, to gender discrimination, to environmental destruction. Recovering from the pandemic gives the world a chance not just to build back better, but build back fairer.” - The World Fair Trade Organisation on #BuildBackFairer. In support of #BuildBackFairer, we present an opportunity to take a look at the Fair Trade Movement around the world, highlighting Cambodia with; Marie Delassus - Export Director at La Plantation, a family owned project, created in 2013, committed to growing and delivering the best sustainable spices. In their flagship farm in the Kampot area in southern Cambodia, they follow century-old traditions to preserve the original taste of each spice, and Ruth Elliot - Founder of Daughters of Cambodia, a British psychologist working with young victims of sex trafficking in Cambodia, started Daughters of Cambodia in 2007, an organisation empowers those trapped in the sex industry to walk free and start a new life, with the means to recover, experience dignity, and prosper. This is achieved by providing jobs coupled with recovery programs.Fair Trade jobs with skill acquisition are the first step and for this Daughters operates production enterprises making sewn products, wooden ornaments, and jewellery along with screen printing.

A rare opportunity to celebrate World Fair Trade Day with other like-minded and ethical organisations from around the world, and do your part to support an ever-grown and more relevant than ever movement. Remember, PROTECT - RESTART - REDESIGN - RESOURCE. Happy World Fair Trade Day! #fairtradelocal #buildbackfairer
