Help empower a woman
According to statistics, seventy percent of the world's 1.3 billion poor, surviving on less than a $1 a day, are women. Fair Trade directly benefits women by allowing them the opportunity to work while tending to their daily tasks. Women in developing countries work an average of 60-90 hours a week, which is usually unpaid and involves child care, cleaning, cooking, and agricultural labor. When women have the opportunity to earn an income, they gain increased control over their family's spending priorities. Studies show that when women earn money, they most often use this income to improve the lives of their children. This results in better schooling, healthier food and improved health care for families, which helps to directly end the cycle of poverty.
