How’s this for sweet? This fragrant gift teaches farmers in Vanuatu how to go organic, so it’s not just their vines that grow sustainably, it’s their profits! Lovely!
With this gift, you will help train farmers to grow and cultivate vanilla vines. And because vanilla is one of the most valuable spices on the market, the fragrant returns will help farmers to provide a better life for their families.
In Papua, Oxfam is also helping local organisations provide agricultural training, encouraging women to participate and improve their own living standards. The focus of the training is to help local people make the most of their natural environment and resources so that they can head towards a sustainable future.
In the village of Aubaidiru, Oxfam has helped set up the Organic Vanilla Enterprise Development Programme. The main objective is to overcome poverty and increase family income. Local communities are trained in effective, sustainable vanilla cultivation and are taught how to plan and operate a sustainable marketing system for the product.
Purchases of Oxfam Unwrapped Vanilla contribute to our rural livelihoods work in Papua and the wider Pacific.
