‘Let it Grow’ Learning Resources

Learn about Francis with our newest downloads!


Without the right conditions, nothing grows. It’s true for plants, but it’s also true for people – we need opportunities, we need training, and we need to be treated fairly.

That’s what Traidcraft’s Let It Grow campaign is all about - providing farmers and artisans with everything they need to escape from poverty and cultivate a better future. These people have so much potential – and we can help to give these families a better future.

From the UK to Kenya, children everywhere (no matter where they might live) just want to be happy. Smiles are the same the world over, and you can even watch a short film we made to prove it!

To accompany the Let It Grow campaign, we’ve produced some learning resources on growing and a Kenyan case study so your class can explore the theme too!
