Nicaragua Fair Trades

Posted on February 27, 2013

My husband, Chuck, and I have just returned from a trip to Nicaragua to learn more about fair trade products.    It was sponsored by the Presbyterian Hunger Program and Equal Exchange and included ten Presbyterians from around the country and two representatives from Equal Exchange.     It was an awesome trip and heartwarming to hear first hand how the help local farmers and others are receiving from One Great Hour of Sharing and other programs are helping them improve their lives.      We would be glad to share our experiences in a Sunday School class or another group if churches in the Presbytery would be interested.    We spent nine years in the 70s with Presbyterian mission work in Korea and Ethiopia, and it was good to get an even larger picture of all the Church is doing.

Blessings,
