Fair Trade Sugar
The Kasinthula Cane Growers Association (KCG) is Traidcraft's new sugar supplier. In February 2004, Traidcraft's Market Access Centre ran a Trading Fairly Workshop for 33 farmers to introduce them to fair trade, Traidcraft and how their premium committee could operate.
As a result, in March 2004, the village of Kapasule gained its own supply of safe, clean water from a borehole paid for with the fair trade premium. Although only 17 of the 500 people who live in the village are KCG farmers, the premium committee decided the whole community should benefit. Before then, women and children had to carry water in containers for 1.5 kilometres from Siseu, the nearest village with clean water.
Joyce Chibouro is 21 and lives and farms with her parents in the village of Chinangwa. She says: "We want to encourage the women in the UK to continue buying the products made with our sugar, because we are working extra hard in the fields to produce the best sugar cane. When you buy, you are helping us to improve our livelihoods."
