Making a World of Difference

Support for ongoing projects has continued unabated in 2020 and now into 2021, further establishing the influence that Trade Aid UK has been able to give to important relief programmes worldwide. Much of this has been enabled by the continued sale of Trade Aid UK Granulated and Caster Sugar through Tesco Stores and online at Ocado. The use of external aid agencies and charities has been instrumental in us being able to reach the remotest parts of the globe where often the needs are greatest. The individual aid projects supported by the Trade Aid UK Foundation can be viewed by simply scrolling up and down the project panel on this page and clicking on the project that interests you.

Funding has been made available to help start micro enterprise schemes in one of the world's most deprived areas, the rubbish mountain known as “Smokey Mountain” in the Philippines where thousands of children and adults scrape an existence from scavenging in this vast rubbish tip. They do the only work there is, waste picking on this dump and they work long hours in the fly ridden wet rubbish to earn one peso a day.

Sadly, one peso is far short of being able to provide even the most basic essentials for a family and a common sight on ‘Smokey Mountain’ are people sorting through cartons of leftover fast food so that they can feed their families.

Trade Aid UK and Links International are actively engaged in the long term process of helping families lift themselves out of the poverty by providing seed corn capital to start their own businesses. Micro enterprise is a way a getting people to start up their own very small business, earning enough to feed their families and eventually to provide a better life for them.
