Fair Trade Alliance Kerala, India
Protecting both elephants and crops with elephant-friendly fencing is just one way that Alliance farmers have used Fair Trade premiums to improve their farming. They have also channeled funds to improve school facilities, support community drinking water programs and control weeds sustainably. Founded in 2006 to gain better and more stable pricing for farmers, Fair Trade Alliance Kerala is now 4,500 member strong. Equal Exchange also sources organic cashews from El Salvador, sold seasonally in bulk at many co-op markets and natural food stores:
APRAINORES, El Salvador
These farmers are proudly reclaiming an island where El Salvador's civil war once raged. After struggling for peasant rights and suffering violent reprisals during the country's 12 year civil war, they received land through a government land reform program. These 60 farmers now grow exquisite cashews in a protected mangrove sanctuary and are learning how to run a Fair Trade farming co-operative.
