Charity information

Trade Aid

Based in Fordingbridge, Hampshire, UK, Trade Aid helps to alleviate poverty in Mikindani, a village in Southern, coastal Tanzania. Working with the people of Tanzania, not for them, Trade Aid provides the opportunity for sustainable employment.
Trade Aid runs a small, non-profit making training hotel. This provides career opportunities as well as employment, trade and foreign investment. Trade Aid also runs a Microcredit Facility, where loans are given to groups and individuals to help to establish and expand small businesses.
Trade Aid does not give 'hand-outs' since this evolves a culture of dependancy. Loans are repaid and money is then redistributed.
Thus the prosperity of Mikindani is improved.
