The Fair Trade Development Center (FTDC)


Since the foundation of the FTDC in 2006, it has successfully  spread more  awareness to enhance the Fair Trade as a socioeconomic and development tool by  targeting small-scale producers and farmers.  To achieve greater  benefits, the FTDC has established alliances  and  deep rooted  partnerships with  highly esteemed  national  and  international NGOs  of diversified specializations to design and  implement  common comprehensive developmental programs.
