2) OCA’s Fair World Project Tour: Fair Trade and Beyond in Nicaragua June 17, 2011 – June 25, 2011
Please join the Fair World Project (FWP) and Maggie’s Organics to explore the promise and challenges to Fair Trade in Nicaragua. Join FWP on our inaugural tour to Nicaragua where together you will learn from the growers, the workers, and the families about their lives and working conditions.
