Ethical Tea Partnership

THE ETHICAL TEA PARTNERSHIP

We are proud to be part of the Ethical Tea Partnership – a global not-for-profit organisation committed to creating a fairer, better, and more sustainable tea industry for workers, farmers, and the environment.

The ETP brings tea companies, development agencies and governmental organisations together to improve the lives of communities across tea growing regions. Their aim is to drive long-term change in  economics, equality, and the environment, and strive to reach the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

The ETP has already reached over one million tea workers, and we hope to use our collaboration to have an even greater impact – improving incomes, empowering women and helping this valuable sector become more resilient against the impact of climate change.

CHILDREN IN NEED IN INDIA

Assam has the highest rate of maternal mortality in all of India’s states. Our partnership with Children In Need India has led to the first project of its kind in this region.

Together, we are focusing on sustainable and empowering solutions for women and children. The project supports the transition from pregnancy to infancy and has provided pregnant women and newborn babies in the Golaghat district of Assam with vital access to health, nutrition, water and sanitation.

Sexual Health Awareness Event Golaghat, Assam
CASE STUDY

Sexual Health Awareness Event
Golaghat, Assam

On International Women’s Day, we held a Sexual Health Awareness event for 84 adolescents in the Golaghat area of Assam. Our aim was to break down taboos, remove any shame, and encourage open conversation around what’s normal and expected for young people.

Our ultimate aim is to keep adolescents safe from abuse and give them the confidence to approach their own health with knowledge, facts, and the reassurance that help and advice are always available if they need it.
