Towards the end of February this year, Yannina Meza came to visit us from an organisation in Peru called Manos Amigas. Yannina works with crafts people from across Peru and the organisation is a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO). We were lucky enough to have her with us for a few days and we’ll be putting more details up here of what happened during her stay.
On Tuesday 21st February we hosted an event at The Methodist Hall in Paisley with primary and secondary schools. Throughout the day pupils heard from Yannina about the work she does with producers as well as hearing how she helps provide meals and support for local children. Create Paisley and JTS also ran sessions and here is the stop-motion animation the pupils with with the help of Maria from Create Paisley.
You can listen to the talk Yannina gave to one of the Primary School groups in the first episode of our PODCAST PLUS.
