rice-challenge2

Canonbie Church has decided to take part in the Malawi Kitchen Rice Challenge – we have purchased 90kg of Malawian rice, which can be purchased from the Church at £2.99 per bag. If a farmer in Malawi can sell 90kg of rice at a fair price, then he would have sufficient income to send one of his children to High School.

So join us in taking this challenge. For more information on this and other fairly traded products that are available, have a look at this website.
