Coffee Chain Game by Oxfam

Profits from the coffee industry are unfairly distributed – explore why with these materials for students aged 13+. Coffee companies make huge profits, while the farmers who grow the coffee make barely enough to live on. These resources show the contrast between farmers who sell their coffee on the open market, and those able to sell their coffee to Fair Trade buyers. Includes powerful interviews with coffee growers in Uganda. These materials are designed for UK schools, but could be adapted to other settings.
