Fair Trade in Palestine
Fair trade is a relatively recent phenomenon in Palestine but is growing in popularity as people come to understand the message and benefits of fair trade. While BFTA focuses on handicrafts, there are many other fair trade products in Palestine, including olive oil, olives, almonds, sesame seeds and honey and much more.
Local Palestinian organizations have joined together to work on establishing the Arab Fair Trade Forum starting from Palestine and connecting with neighboring Arab Countries. The short term goal of the AFTF is to promote Fair Trade principals throughout Palestine reaching more and more people , reaching our long term goal which is to connect to more Arab organizations either members of the WFTO or just support the movement and not yet WFTO members.
The movement is growing massively all over the world, the world will be much safer if we all loved and respected each other.
