I have always dreamed of an opportunity. A chance to guarantee my children an education, to work with dignity and to be free from the inhuman treatment my employers subjected me to. To have a simple house, but complete with everything my family needs. My dream has finally come true and, for me, this opportunity is called Fair Trade
