Conflict 1 

Over 70 Fairtrade supporters visited Sainsbury's stores across Devon on Saturday 28th October 2017 to send the message to Sainsbury's Head Office that Ditching the Fairtrade Mark is already causing hardship to tea growing cooperatives. Locations visited: Brixham, Dawlish, Exeter (4 stores), Newton Abbot, Ottery St Mary, Paignton, Plymouth (2 stores), Torquay, Totnes.

The video, Justice for Fairtrade, made in Exeter that morning can be viewed on our Facebook page

At last the hostel for blind and visually impaired pupils at Katente West Primary School in Mubende, Uganda, is almost finished!. There is an update in Sue Errington's report of the visit she made in September. But of course, now that the building itself is complete, the next focus is to complete building a block of latrines - and then furnish and equip it. Tom Errington completed the Great West Run in aid of the hostel for visually impaired children at Katente West Primary School - donations are still welcome at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/TomErrington1

 

To celebrate 20 years of DDE we have published a new brochure and have set ourselves a target to raise £100,000 to fund our work with schools and communities across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay over the next 3-5 years.

Hola Perú and Take Mali - helping you deliver the National Curriculum 2014

‘This is one of the most innovative and exciting community projects to be found in the South West… Through its activities, it is a key player in Devon in celebrating cultural diversity and challenging injustice, both of which it does energetically and enthusiastically.’  Martyn Goss, Exeter Diocese
