Fair Trade Fordham University

Students for Fair Trade (SFT) is the official fair trade club at Rose Hill. Members of SFT work closely with a Gabelli School of Business program that runs a small business that sells fair trade products to the greater Fordham and New York communities. SFT’s goals are twofold: to continue to grant western market access to third-world artisans, and to educate all about the virtues of fair trade.
