DDE is a steering partner in Devon's FairTrade status success

What is Fairtrade? Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.

What is Fairtrade Fortnight? For two weeks each year, thousands of individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to celebrate the people who grow our food, people who live in some of the poorest countries in the world and who are often exploited and badly paid.

Children’s Story Books - Appeal for Uganda: During lockdown DDE has been supporting a project in Uganda training teachers to teach reading using phonics. We are now appealing for assistance to provide story books for the children so that they can begin to enjoy reading. There are two ways you could help either with a donation to buy books from a supplier in Uganda or by donating suitable books which will be shipped to Uganda. 

You only have until Sunday afternoon to watch Queen of Katwe the true story of a young girl living in a very impoverished situation in an informal settlement in Kampala. But she has a genius for chess! A really hopeful film. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000b1zs/queen-of-katwe
