CAFOD is a major British charity that has been fighting third world poverty since 1962. We believe that all human beings have a right to dignity and respect and that the world’s resources are a gift to be shared by all men and women, whatever their race, nationality or religion.

Fair Trade Ministry
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.
Some 20 million people living near the equator depend on these products for their livelihood. 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. Check our Fair Trade website.
