Tex and Abby with women from KwaZulu-Natal

Sanibonani. The very small Global Exchange Fair Trade Online Store Team (three full time ladies in total) is once again complete. For the past three weeks, Tex Dworkin (Store Manager) and Abby Edelman (Head Buyer), were in South Africa and Swaziland for GX’s annual direct buy trip. Tex and Abby met with several craft groups in the region to connect with groups we’ve been working with for several years (Batsiranai) and also to develop new relationships with others. It turned out to be an amazing and powerful trip, and they both came away with many friendships and uplifting stories. The upcoming blog posts will consist of their stories about the different crafts groups they met with accompanied with plenty of photos and even video. So stay tuned!

…we give it a thumbs up too.
