Other International Opportunities

Nicaragua Delegation

Each year the Presbyterian Hunger Program leads a one-week delegation of 12 Presbyterians from around the United States. Participants experience the benefits of Fair Trade first-hand when they visit coffee, craft and sewing cooperatives and have the opportunity to deepen their commitments to global discipleship in learning about the items we buy from clothes to coffee, handicrafts to Sweat-Free T-shirts.

The delegation is perfect for anyone involved in a congregation, college or camp that uses Fair Trade coffee, tea or T-shirts. It is also great for anyone who has hosted a holiday bazaar with Fair Trade products, or simply wants to learn more.”

The cost of the 2017 trip was $875.
