Have you or any young people you know been captured by the World Cup? Would you like to start a club at your school or youth group, or just have a kick around with your kids at the park?
At Fair Do’s, we sell footballs that have been made in fair conditions, for fair pay…and they’re fantastic quality too!
Several of our staff members recently attended a presentation by Fair Trade Wales on the subject of child labour in Pakistan. Some of what we heard concerning the hours and pay given to children to stitch footballs was eye-opening and shocking.
We also learned that the footballs used at the World Cup were not fair trade. (You can read more about the workers who stitched these footballs here.)
If you want to start to make a difference, please vote with your feet (in football boots!) and purchase a fairtrade football.
