On 24 April 2013, 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 were injured when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. We believe that’s too many people to lose on one day. As a mark of respect to the artisans, we celebrate this day.
With a purpose to spread awareness about Fair Trade among youth and to help them becoming conscious consumer, a small event was organised by FTF-I at F-Tec Skill Development on 23 April, 2016. Students of F-Tec were informed about the Ten Principles of Fair Trade and were briefed about the movement and how their every purchase makes a difference in someone’s life was elaborated by our Program Manager, Ms Sadhna Arya.
It was a good information sharing event with students, all students were very curious to know about Fair Trade and few of them expressed interest in establishing a long term association with Fair Trade. These students come from various backgrounds and experiences from marginalised section of society.
“I never thought who makes my clothes, or what is being paid to the artisan who is behind the product. It was an eye opening session for me”, a student said.
Team leader Ms Rekha along with her team like Mr Miraj, Mr Vinod, Ms Shivangi and all students, very well cooperated with us and happily invited Fair Trade Forum-India to be a part of their events, so that students can become more conscious.
Fair Trade Forum- India in collaboration with Foresight Society of Human Resources and Development celebrated Fashion Revolution Week.
We would like to say thanks to FS-HRD team for their keen interest, time and participation in the event. It was a great informative session with the team of FS-HRD.
