The Ross County Foundation would like to deliver a project to help raise and promote awareness of Fair Trade in the rural areas of the Highlands & Islands. We believe Fair Trade awareness and work can be delivered through sport and in particular football. Dependent on the funding we can secure our project will involve delivering the following:
- Introduction to fair trade educational workshops for children.
- Fair trade presentations across the Highlands & Islands.
- The creation of a detailed information booklet on how to become more engaged with fair trade.
- Providing fair trade footballs across the Highlands & Islands to local sports teams, community organisations, groups and schools.
We would like to link in with other leading fair trade organisations and try to become a role model charitable foundation in Scotland for promoting fair trade. We would develop a fair trade awareness page for our website and our charitable foundation will be adopting fair trade footballs for any of its community sports events. There would also be a celebration event or festival at the end of the project.
