THIRST for Knowledge

These pages 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.

These resources will be regularly updated with the latest research and initiatives concerning the rights of tea workers, farmers, their communities and their environment. Please do contact THIRST if you know of other relevant reports or initiatives that should be included in this collection.

This collection of resources is provided here purely in a spirit of sharing views and experience and does not imply endorsement by THIRST. Descriptions are taken from the documents themselves, or from the relevant organisation’s website. 


Including Child labour, Climate, Forced labour, Health, Housing, Nutrition, Representation, Wages, Water and Sanitation,  and Women
