KKĠ Handbook For Volunteers

This publication by Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust is specifically dedicated to youths. The handbook is possible because of the partnership between two Fair Trade organizations – Fair Trade Hellas and Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust.

The objective of this guide is to provide concrete information on the ethos of volunteering. The inspiration has stemmed from various encounters with volunteers and activists together with consumers and the general public. This is a small user friendly handbook, designed for you to have a smooth reading.

We thank all those who have supported the 'FRAME' project, Fair Trade Hellas for

sharing information, Sophie Colsell for the editing, Kuluri for the meticulous design and lastly but not least, all the youths who will make use of this information.

Jekk ma tridx tħalli d-dinja kif sibtha...

Fl-aĦbarijiet sikwit nisimgħu dwar ħaddiema fil-pajjiżi fqar li jipproduċu affarijiet bħal ħwejjeġ, prodotti tal-ikel u ġugarelli li filwaqt li aħna nħallsu l-belli liri għalihom biex nixtruhom, il-kumpaniji transnazzjonali partikolari jħallsu ’l dawn il-ħaddiema bil-loqom. Quddiem dawn l-inġustizzji hemm żewġ għażliet. Jew li tħalli kollox għaddej qisu m’huwa jseħħ xejn, jew inkella tagħmel xi ħaġa biex tipprova twaqqaf din l-inġustizzja u tgħin biex ma tħallix id-dinja kif sibtha.

Nathalie Grima, attivista favur id-drittijiet ta’ persuni emarġinati u foqra madwar id-dinja, għarfet il-bżonn li hemm ħafna xogħol x’jista’ jsir biex ngħinu nnaqqsu dawn l-anomaliji u inġustizzji soċjali li ta’ kuljum iħabbtu wiċċhom magħhom dawn in-nies. Barra li ħadmet b’mod volontarju mill-viċin ma’ nies żvantaġġjati u foqra f’diversi pajjiżi bħall-Italja, it-Tuneżija, l-Uganda u l-Peru, hija kienet ukoll waħda mil-fundaturi ta’ proġett partikolari, bil-għan li jdaħħal kunċett ġdid fostna l-Maltin, dak tal-kummerċ ġust.
