The Rice Challenge is Back!

Each year fairandfunky take on the 90kg rice challenge from their partners Just Trading Scotland. The challenge is to sell 90kg of rice – because when a farmer sells 90kg of rice they can afford to send their children to school for a year.

Working with schools, churches, youth clubs and individuals the rice challenge has been a roaring success. In 2014 they sold 270kg of rice; in 2015 they sold 360kg! This year they’d like to sell 450kg of rice and complete the challenge FIVE times over.

To find out how your school, church, business or community group can get involved see the Fair and Funky website for more details http://www.fairandfunky.com/the-rice-challenge-is-back-2/
