Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT -

JAM­BO­HUT is an or­gan­i­sa­tion which uses the prin­ci­ples of fair trade to help pre­serve and con­serve wildlife. Ash­ford Fair­trade rep­re­sen­ta­tive Andrew Hind set up the com­pany in Wood­church in 1998 to help small non-food pro­duc­ers in Kenya. Fifty per cent of the net prof­its raised are used in wildlife projects in Africa. Jam­bo­hut also spon­sors the Bar­bary Lion Project at Port Lympne Wild An­i­mal Park which aims to im­prove the breed­ing of bar­bary, or At­las li­ons, which are de­scribed as ex­tinct in the wild. Visit www.jam­bo­ to find out more and to take part in a sur­vey on fair trade.
