About us

dsc-0594.jpgIl-Ħanut l-Arka, is a Fair Trade shop run by Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust. Our goal is to promote fair and equitable trading terms with producers in poor countries. This gives people in poor countries a chance to fairly work themselves out of poverty.

Our aim is to also offer consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their every day shopping.

Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust is a voluntary organization that works in Fair Trade. We encourage the development of cooperative organizations so people may take control of their lives.

Since 1996 our organization has been constantly active in the promotion of fair values in trade through regular outreach programs in the form of formal and informal learning processes. This work aims and achieves the empowerment of the Cooperatives members, its associates and partners, members of the civil society and the general public, who are educated in becoming more active, socially responsible and critical citizens and consumers.

KKĠ runs its educational process in a flexible and easily-adaptable way that meets the needs of particular communities within society, and different niches within the market (the latter group is further addressed through transparent and socially-oriented means of marketing). 

Reaching these aims has always depended on the on-going educational process the members of KKĠ and its associates undergo, which creates a shared pool of resources and developmental tools that are constantly improved and updated.
