Wake up to fair trade to help farmers get ahead

Sasha Caldera wants you to think about your morning coffee.Where did the beans, for example, come from? How much was the farmer who grew them paid? 

Caldera, who graduated last year with a Master of Arts in Intercultural and International Communication, admits that fair trade is a daunting issue for many people. But he has seen the impact that a choice as small as buying a cup of coffee has on farmers in developing countries.

“I tell people they can make a huge difference by changing the way they buy things. People would be shocked if they found out a lot of the products they purchase on a daily basis haven’t given the producer or even the whole community what they deserved for it,” he says.
