Inspiring learning for a fairer future

Lochardil Primary are rice champions!

A huge well done to Lochardil Primary School who completed the 90kg Malawi Rice Challenge in just one week.

 

Just Trading Scotland has challenged schools, as well as churches, colleges and other organisations, to sell 90kg of rice – the amount of rice sold that would enable a Malawian farmer to pay for a year’s basic secondary education for one child.

By undertaking the challenge,  pupils learnt about some of the issues facing small-scale farmers in Malawi,  and how paying a fair price for the rice helps elevate farmers out of poverty.

For more information on how you can take up the challenge, please visit Just Trading's  website
