Lochdonhead and Ulva Schools’ 90kg Rice Challenge

To learn more about Social Enterprise, Learning for Sustainability, Fair Trade and Global Citizenship, the pupils in Lochdonhead and Ulva Primary Schools undertook the 90kg Rice Challenge.

In Malawi primary education is free, but secondary school education is not and is often far too expensive for the majority of the population to afford. This means that one in three children is unable to attend secondary school. Selling just 90kg of fairly traded Kilombero Rice at £3.00 a bag is all it takes to enable a farmer to send their child to secondary school for a year.

The children worked very hard and have almost sold out! Thank you to everyone who helped us by buying some rice.

We hope to do it again next year so that our help can be sustainable.
