Uplift Fair Trade
Hope While Australians live in prosperity, over one-sixth of the world’s population – 1.2billion people – are still living in extreme poverty. With slavery, disease, disability and lack of education and healthcare rampant in the world, it is easy to lose hope. But together, we can bring hope to the hopeless, our prosperity bringing about a more just world. Our Role as Consumers Many Australians are unaware that our actions as consumers actually have a direct impact on the livelihoods of people living in poor communities. Without humbly opening our eyes and our hearts to the reality of the role we play in inequality, we will never be moved to act. Take Action The good news is that many people are beginning to understand this and are helping their community understand and take action as consumers. But sometimes it can be hard to know how to help others on the journey towards making different, more ethical choices. You may have heard of Fair Trade, but have trouble accessing products that are ethical, empower producers and end the cycle of hopelessness. The Answer to Injustice Uplift want to help you become the answer to injustice. We do this through guest speaking and education, by making Fair Trade products more accessible through our Fair Trade Events and by engaging churches, schools, businesses and communities with practical change through ethical awareness.
Uplift Fair Trade has a vision to educate and empower people here in Australia to ‘uplift’ people all over the world who are poor and marginalised. We exist to help abolish the industry for human trafficking and slavery through Fair Trade.
