Traidcraft has been running trips for over 20 years and now to visit Fair Trade producers in the developing world.
It calls them “Meet the People Tours” – a chance to visit marginalised Fair Trade producers in their workshops, their homes homes as well as visiting sites of historic interest.
Think of them as inspiring Fair Trade holidays and a chance to meet the actual, real people behind the products.
You’ll learn something of the different cultures, visit development projects and sites of interest, meet a wide variety of people and have your ideas of developing countries challenged.
These tours are, in fact, much more than just a holiday!
Choose from visiting communities and cooperatives in Latin America. Or maybe tours in Cuba, or journey through stunning landscapes and cultural capitals visiting farmers using traditional, ingenious techniques in Chile?
