Fair Trade Products from Uganda

We have a growing number of beautiful fair trade products from Uganda, like the organic cotton dress shown here.  With the current focus on KONY2012, we wish to point out there are also good things happening in northern Uganda.  Fair trade groups are working with farmers and seamstresses to use locally grown organic cotton to create clothing and accessories and export them to Europe and North America.  This results in farmers and artisans getting a chance at lifting themselves out of poverty while preserving local art forms, like wax cloth prints, and minimizing environmental impact.
