With Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching, chocolate sales will be going through the roof. Unfortunately, many people do not understand the cost others pay so that we may have the chocolate we know and love. It is important that each of us takes responsibility in teaching our children about social responsibility.
Did you know: 284,000 children toil in abusive labor conditions in West Africa’s cocoa fields?
Global Exchange is on a mission to change that! Educators of all kinds (parents, teachers, youth leaders, after school providers, daycares, etc…) are invited to take part in the Fair Trade Curriculum provided by Global Exchange, visit the curriculum page for more details!
Teach Global Exchange’s curriculum in your classroom anytime between now and Valentine’s Day and you will be entered into a prize drawing to win over $75 worth of Fair Trade chocolate and educational materials!
