October, 2007: Fair Harvest Exchange Program to Nicaragua

7th October, 2007 - Posted by Zarah Patriana - No Comments

This December, spend your vacation harvesting social justice in Nicaragua. Take a Reality Tour trip with Global Exchange! Participate in a transformative travel experience with Global Exchange and work with a Fair Trade coffee cooperative to experience the other side of the struggle for social and economic justice.

Global Exchange is sponsoring several highly motivated individuals to travel to Nicaragua this harvest season and work with a Fair Trade coffee cooperative (CECOCAFEN). Fair Harvesters will live with a cooperative member family and work alongside farmers to harvest coffee, learning by participating in the daily lives of small-scale farming families and beginning to understand the meaning of Fair Trade producers. This is a unique opportunity, and Fair Harvest is not intended to be a tour or tourist visit, but rather to be a lived experience that will motivate the participants to be committed activists when they return.
