Supporting Traidcraft’s ‘Hidden Entrepreneur’ Project

During Spring this year, I’m helping TRAIDCRAFT through fund-raising, support #HiddenEntrepreneurs living in poverty.
If you would like to help too, I have a box for small change in the shop. Every penny we collect will be fund matched by UK Aid, and every penny counts!
For example, for just a few pounds we could help to pay for a hidden entrepreneur to attend a business training session, or invest in basic tools for their business, or even reach new markets with their wares to diversify their income.
For more information look at the TRAIDCRAFT website, or call into @Eye2eye FairTrade Shop
