The Fairtrade School
Vidyashilp Academy is India’s first Fairtrade School. We join a growing number of institutions the world over that are recognized as change makers.
The school demonstrates a strong commitment to Fairtrade in practice through the enriched curriculum with interesting and engaging activities and classroom interactions. Our students understand how trade and our food system work and how we can work together to make it fairer.
Students get a chance to incorporate social responsibility into their everyday choices and grow up to understand Fairtrade values and incorporate these values in their future professions.
We have been conducting numerous campaigns with the Fairtrade Association in triggering awareness and broadening the understanding of trade issues with our community. We also believe that each purchase has the power to make a difference in the lives of the farmers and workers.
The Department of Commerce & Economics as a value add to the course, have Shilpreneurship and Social Entrepreneurship as their initiatives. Fair Trade Association is a branch to Shilpreneurship through which the students are allowed to understand the importance of ethics in Business as well as be a part of a world wide campaign.
Fairtrade is a large international movement that aims to empower the farmers and workers in our food and fashion supply chains. Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fairer terms of trade for farmers and workers.
