Gosport Fairtrade Action (GFA), is a group of volunteers, meeting regularly since 2006 to promote Fairtrade in Gosport. We work closely with Gosport Borough Council to meet the Five Goals needed to achieve Fairtrade Borough Status, which we have held since 2007.
We want everyone to know that choosing Fairtrade products changes lives. Fairtrade producers can: earn a living income, take care of their families’ and communities health and education; farm their land sustainably and adapt to climate change.
We seek to increase awareness of Fairtrade, encourage more people and organisations to use Fairtrade goods, and more retailers and catering establishments to sell them. We seek to promote Fairtrade to the public, to community organisations, Churches, schools and workplaces in the Borough. We do this through events, stalls, talks, activities, displays and sharing information resources, such as videos. Our Annual Newsletter gives a good idea of what we do – You can download it here.
