Besides the images, FairMail also provided the FairMail concept for Oxfam’s new cards. Just like with a normal FairMail card you can also find the picture, name and email of the teenage photographer on the back of the Oxfam cards.
Cooperation between NGO and social enterprise
The cooperation was born during the Belgian visit of FairMail Peru photographers Anidela and Angeles in June 2015. During one of their presentations for the buyers of the Belgian fair trade shops they inspired Oxfam to switch to the use of fair trade images for their cards.
Allowing them to further align their products to Oxfam’s international mission to fight global poverty. While at the same time helping FairMail to combat child labour through the art of photography.
We hope this cooperation will inspire other NGO’s (Non-Governmental Organisation) to follow Oxfam’s example.
