A bag of Rice Can Change a Life
Beatlie School Campus takes on 90kg rice challenge to give a helping hand to Malawian farmers and their families.
Beatlie School Campus will be helping to make a huge difference to the lives of farmers in Malawi and their families by taking part in the 90kg rice challenge.
Malawi is one of the world’s poorest countries and less than 1 in 4 children are able to attend secondary school. The 90kg rice challenge was inspired by the fact that if a farmer can sell just 90 x 1kg of Kilombero rice at a fair price, they will be able to send a child to Secondary School for a year.
By taking part in the challenge Beatlie are looking to show that by simply making changes to the way we buy food, fair trade can help to transform the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.
The Rice will be being sold by Beatlie at £3.20 per 1KG Bag.
“It’s amazing to see the enthusiasm that Beatlie have had in taking on the 90kg rice challenge. By taking part they’re helping to create a brighter future for the people of Malawi and their children – James Johnstone JTS
