JTS is a fair trade organisation, set up to facilitate the import and distribution of fairly traded products to the UK. Our main focus is on our partnership with small holder farmers in the North of Malawi, through this we seek to empower local producers by giving them greater access to international markets. Through giving these producers a fair price for their product they are enabled to to invest in the education of their children and improving their productivity through investing in farming equipment.
At its best, trade creates international networks of people who work to develop their skills, their resources and their communities; through trade they can work their way out of poverty, develop economically, educationally and politically.
The key way in which you can partner with us is through taking part in the 90kg Rice Challenge. Within this we challenge schools, churches, faith groups and community groups to sell 90kg of Kilombero Rice as this is the amount needed to be sold in order to enable a farmer to send a child to secondary school for one year. If you think you can take the challenge, just contact us at Info(at)jts.co.uk
