Fairtrade Africa is a group making sure African coffee bean farmers earn a fair income for helping homes around the world brew the perfect cup of coffee. In this short film GLP Films visits Fairtrade Africa as they work in the interest of farmers and fair trade-certified producers in Africa, helping them connect to consumers worldwide. Their unique partnership with Kilimanjaro Native Cooperative Union (KNCU) coffee farmers, on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, has resulted in community development projects that seek to empower and make a positive difference in the local community. Fairtrade Africa makes a significant impact on the lives of farmers; through fair trade, families earn enough money to give their children an education, obtain medical care, and live their lives with dignity.
