As World Fair Trade Day approaches on Saturday 8th May, 2010 we felt it was a good time to show you this short, but thought-provoking video.
It demonstrates the startling truth about how Fair Trade can help people out of poverty in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.
The video has been produced by our friends at Shared Interest which is a co-operative lending society that aims to reduce poverty in the world by providing fair and just financial services. They have been part of the Fair Trade Movement for 20 years and work extensively with community-based businesses in Africa and other continents to help them make the most of Fair Trade.
For more information on how you can invest with Shared Interest please visit their website.
