Equality for everyone in tea

Globally, women and children are more vulnerable than their male, adult counterparts. Women and young people in tea communities are particularly vulnerable, due to cultural norms in many tea-producing countries, poverty and gender-biased workplaces. Gender-based violence, child trafficking and child marriage are all evident in tea communities.

Our work focuses on:

  • Creating empowered, safe communities.
  • Ensuring equal opportunities for women and young people.

We work with tea communities using participatory approaches and community development fora to give tea workers a voice; we work with tea companies to provide expertise and guidance on gender transformative practices, ensuring that women and children have access to resources and opportunities; and we partner with organisations who share tried-and-tested approaches to tackle inequality in tea communities. Please contact us if you are interested in partnering.
