TrAid Enterprise Team
Aim: To promote ethical international trade to support disadvantaged producers.
Rationale: The Esperanto network covers practically the whole world and a vast
range of economic circumstances. "TrAid" is a way to put the network to good use and to encourage the participation of others.
1. Use the global network to make trade links between communities, exporting
Aboriginal Art and other Australian products and importing handcrafts from financially poorer countries, in a similar way
to the Community Aid Abroad program.
2. Apply for funding to support establishment of the program.
3. Market goods via the internet and other outlets.
4. Promote the program.
5. Consider expanding to include a manufacturing operation involving screen printing
and monogramming, using Work-For-the-Dole labour and capital. The operation could print and stitch products for global
Esperanto community as well as for local community organisations and may be able to generate funds to support the humanitarian
aims of the TrAid program.
