Fair Trade in Ecuador
Do you love chocolate? Fair trade? Social empowerment? Cultural preservation? Well, you’re in luck! Travel to Ecuador and join a Fair Trade internship in the Mindo Cloud Forest for a unique chocolate-related project. Focus on sustainable economic development and heritage conservation while you work with indigenous farming families.
On this project, a women’s association provides educational resources to local farmers and generates income to support the community.
Bonus: The chocolate is vegan and sustainable (and delicious)! But really, this is an amazing opportunity for students interested in International Development, Global Studies or a related field.FIND OUT MORE
