Here is the solution for your Fairtrade Fortnight activity ...
90kg Rice Challenge
The 90kg Rice Challenge is the perfect activity for your congregation or community this Fairtrade Fortnight. It comes with a Challenge Pack which
contains sermon outlines, prayers, activities which talk about feeding the world and reaping a good harvest, both home and overseas.
It involves inspiring your congregation to sell 90 x 1kg bags of Kilombero Rice whilst teaching about current issues such as trade justice, sustainability,
stewardship, and caring for our planet and all its peoples. The possibilities are endless. If 90kg is too much for your congregation you can do a half Challenge of 45 kg of rice, or even just buy any amounts to support the farmers. By taking on the 90kg Rice Challenge, you'll be helping to support some of the world's poorest people, empowering them to be able to trade their way out of poverty with dignity. In Malawi only primary education is free, and secondary education is often far too expensive for the majority of the population to afford with less than one in three children being able to attend. Selling just 90kg of Kilombero Rice is all it takes to provide a farmer enough of a sustainable income to run their farm, feed and clothe their family and enable them to provide a secondary education for a year.
