Assembly of the month

PrimaryFair’s   Fair in 2014: February 2014 assembly and presentation
Theme: Fairtrade
Country: GhanaChwarae   teg yn 2014: Gwasanaeth a chyflwyniad cynradd Chwefror 2014
Thema: Masnach deg
Gwlad: Ghana
Our February primary assembly, ‘Fair’s fair’,   encourages pupils to think about the global stories contained in our shopping   bags and to understand fairtrade as a positive step towards responsible   shopping habits.All of the food we eat has been made   or grown by someone somewhere else.

The focus is on cocoa farmers in Ghana, who set up a cooperative to grow and sell their cocoa for a fair price. The money they earn helps to support community projects, such as building schools for their children.We can help farmers from poorer countries trade their way out of poverty by buying products marked with the   Fairtrade symbol.

Mae ein gwasanaeth cynradd mis Chwefror, ‘Chwarae teg   yn 2014’, yn annog disgyblion i ystyried y storïau byd-eang sydd yn ein   bagiau siopa, a deall bod masnach deg yn gam cadarnhaol tuag at arferion   siopa cyfrifol.

Mae’r holl fwyd yr ydym yn ei fwyta wedi ei   wneud neu’i dyfu gan rywun arall mewn man arall.

Canolbwyntir ar ffermwyr coco yn   Ghana, sydd wedi sefydlu cwmni cydweithredol i dyfu a gwerthu eu coco am bris   teg. Mae’r arian a enillir ganddynt yn cael ei ddefnyddio i gefnogi   prosiectau cymunedol, fel adeiladu ysgolion ar gyfer eu plant.

Gallwn helpu ffermwyr o’r gwledydd   tlotaf i fasnachu eu ffordd allan o dlodi drwy brynu nwyddau sy’n cario’r   marc Masnach Deg.

Our February secondary assembly, ‘Fair trade forever’,   explores the global trading system and the role we all play as consumers   within it.The   focus is on cocoa farmers in Ghana, who set up a cooperative to grow and sell   their cocoa for a fair price. The money they earn helps to support community   projects, such as building schools for their children.

Of   course, there are also farmers who make or grow things to sell locally, not abroad. Find out about a group of dairy farmers in Haiti who are receiving   support so that their products can compete in the local marketplace with milk   from Europe and the US.

Mae ein gwasanaeth uwchradd mis Chwefror, ‘Hir oes i   Fasnach Deg’, yn ystyried y drefn fasnachu fyd-eang a’n rhan ni oll ynddi fel   defnyddwyr.

Canolbwyntir   ar ffermwyr coco yn Ghana, sydd wedi sefydlu cwmni cydweithredol i dyfu a   gwerthu eu coco am bris teg. Mae’r arian a enillir ganddynt yn cael ei   ddefnyddio i gefnogi prosiectau cymunedol, fel adeiladu ysgolion ar gyfer eu   plant.

Wrth   gwrs, mae yna ffermwyr eraill sy’n gwneud ac yn tyfu pethau i’w gwerthu’n   lleol, nid dramor. Cewch glywed am grŵp o ffermwyr llaeth yn Haiti sy’n   derbyn cefnogaeth er mwyn i’w cynnyrch llaeth allu cystadlu, o fewn y   farchnad leol, gyda llaeth o Ewrop ac UDA.
