PFTA Elects A New Board!

May 23, 2015

Congratulations PFTA on their elections

The Palestine Fair Trade Association held their biennial General Assembly at the Jenin Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, May 21, 2015 and elected 9 Board members in democratic and fair elections.  Video here.

Highlights of some PFTA achievements and successes the past year include

  • increasing revenues more than 50%
  • granting interest-free loans to 30 women through the Microloan project
  • planting 17000 olive and almond trees through the Trees for Life project
  • adding 400 new farmers and new regions in Tulkarm and Qalqilia

Canaan Fair Trade celebrates the institutional growth of the PFTA, it's success in running as a farmers union, and the level of interest and engagement the farmers communities have in it.  Canaan pledges to continue support for the PFTA beyond marketing their products: to link them with community networks around the world, and to suppport their efforts to serve their farmers and communities to build a future for Palestine.
