Rwanda: Income-generation through Fair Trade

Excerpt from FPP website: "...This project (Forest Peoples Project), also carried out in collaboration with CAURWA, is improving Batwa people's living conditions, by commercialising their traditional craft of pottery and developing a small business enterprise, "Dancing Pots", based on Fair Trade principles, that will eventually be run by Batwa. The project works in an integrated way on all aspects of pottery development including product quality, marketing, and business training, and strengthening potter groups' organisational capacity. As well as increasing potters' incomes from pottery, the project is also promoting Batwa culture and dance, and is fostering links between Batwa communities and tourism in Rwanda. The main donor is the Community Fund with additional funding from UK Trusts including the Onaway Trust and Rowan Trust, Norwegian Church Aid, Canadian Cooperation and Christian Aid in Rwanda..."
