THIRST for Knowledge
We are in the process of updating our Resources pages. They will build into a comprehensive library of documents, reports, initiatives etc on human rights, environmental and other issues affecting tea workers, farmers and their communities.
By bringing together in one place the rich store of knowledge and experience from a range of civil society organisations, the efforts of tea workers and farmers and their representatives to assert their rights will be better informed and supported.
Please contact THIRST if you know of other resources that should be included in this collection.
THIRST for perspective
In January this year THIRST CEO, Sabita Banerji, completed a three-week fact-finding and networking trip to India that will help to inform the broad research we’ll be undertaking in the coming months to explore the sector’s human rights and environmental strengths and weaknesses – and where change is needed and possible. The India trip provided some valuable perspectives which are shared in this blog; THIRST for Perspective – Notes on an Indian tea tour.
The findings will contribute to the wider mapping of the tea industry and civil society efforts to improve tea workers’ and farmers’ human rights and research into what needs to be – and can be – done to bring about lasting positive change.
Please contact THIRST if your civil society organisation is interested in collaborating on this research.
