About this blog

Welcome to the blog of the Enough for Everyone program of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). By "just living" we mean both justice-based living and just simply living – freeing ourselves from the clutter of stuff so we can focus on living faithfully and living well. Join us in the exploration!

Fair Trade Delegation to Nicaragua!

January 8-15, 2011

The Presbyterian Hunger Program is leading a delegation to Nicaragua, and you are invited!

Participants will experience the benefits of Fair Trade first-hand when they visit coffee and sewing cooperatives. The delegation is perfect for anyone involved in a congregation, college or camp that uses Fair Trade coffee, tea, chocolate or t-shirts. It’s also great for anyone who has hosted a holiday bazaar with Fair Trade products, or simply wants to learn more.

Delegates will:
•  Meet Fair Trade farmers and artisans
•  Pick coffee and stay in homes of farming families
•  Meet the women who sew Sweat-Free Ts
•  Build community with fellow Presbyterians
•  Learn about Nicaragua, Fair Trade and more!

Margie and Jacobo

Jacobo Cisneros, a Fair Trade farmer and leader in the Tierra Nueva cooperative, and Margaret LeMaster, a participant in the 2008 delegation, become friends while picking coffee together.

The delegation is sponsored by the Presbyterian Hunger Program, Equal Exchange and CEPAD (the Council of Protestant Churches in Nicaragua).

Applications are due November 22.
