Fair Trade Ministry

Peace and Social Justice

Coffee, tea and chocolate are big businesses. But for the majority of small, third-world farmers, the benefits are small. The chain of events that leads from the farm to you leaves the farmer with very little to live on. But there is an alternative: FAIR TRADE. Fair trade shares the bounty of the coffee trade with those who grow the crop, helping them build a better future for themselves and their communities. The Fair Trade Ministry encourages the St. Mary Immaculate community to use Fair Trade products.
