Did You Know Today Is 'International Day for the Eradication of Poverty'?
On October 17th, 1987 over a 100,000 people descended on the Human Rights and Liberties Plaza in Paris to honour the victims of extreme poverty, hunger and violence.
A deliberate choice because the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed at that same spot 40 years previously.
Since then the UN has declared that 17th October is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. A day when everyone can come together and help eradicate poverty.
Traidcraft's mission has always been to fight poverty through trade and every product bought through Traidcraft goes towards helping lift one more person out of poverty.
- So with that in mind, why not stop by for a visit??!....
