May I introduce myself: my name is Roberto Valbuena, I live in Madrid, Spain and I love Fair Trade. I buy Fair Trade products and volunteer for a local NGO that supports and sells Fairly Traded goods. I have got a day job and in my spare time I enjoy gathering information and sharing it here, with all the people interested in Fair Trade.
All the information that I have put here has been drawn for NGOs' websites, reports, books and also from my own experience; however, it may happen that you find some errors. If so, I would appreciate if you could contact me to fix them.
Fair Trade is a global movement, involving, by its very nature, North and South countries; therefore I have chosen to build this website in english, rather than in my mother language, spanish, to make it readable for a larger audience. I hope you enjoy it.
