CRS Ethical trade website, Dee Toups, a traveler with the tour, says,

“Before this tour, I had been aware of fair trade practices in general . . . [and] the many positive, ecological and economic impacts fair trade can have on marginalized families. . . But this tour was remarkable. Never had I imagined the real, life-altering influence fair trade can have on families in places like the West Bank, where work opportunities and social interaction with the ‘outside’ world are limited. Fair trade brings an alternative to charity, and therefore brings self-reliance, dignity and self-worth. . . Most of all, in Palestine, fair trade brings hope to people who feel unwanted and forgotten. In Palestine, fair trade brings peace.”
