Transcript

  • 1. Meet Maria from Colombia.<br />
  • 2. My family<br />Hi, my name is Maria.<br />I am six years old and live in a country <br />called Colombia in Latin America.<br />
  • 3.
  • 4. My family<br />I live with my grandparents, auntie and cousins. <br />Our house is on our coffee farm high up in<br />the mountains.<br />
  • 5. My family<br />Our house and coffee farm is way up high in the hills. Can you spot my grandad and aunty <br />in this picture?<br />
  • 6. My family<br />Here I am with my grandma helping to make lunch. <br />
  • 7. My family<br />By selling coffee beans we earn money to buy things we need, like water and electricity. Here is a coffee branch on our farm.<br />
  • 8. My family<br />Growing coffee can be a difficult way to earn money though. Sometimes bad weather or bugs <br />mean the coffee plants cannot grow.<br />
  • 9. My family<br />Sometimes we find it really hard to get a good price for our coffee beans because so many other farmers are trying to sell their coffee beans <br />at the same time.<br />
  • 10. My family<br />With the help of CAFOD, my grandparents and other farmers joined together to make a group <br />called Eurocafé. Here we can share our <br />business problems and learn from each other.<br />
  • 11. My family<br />Things have really changed since we joined Eurocafe.<br />
  • 12. My family<br />With the help of CAFOD we are learning new skills. We are more confident in our business, and have <br />learnt new ways to look after our coffee.<br />
  • 13. My family<br />Now that we are part of Eurocafe we can get a fair price for our coffee. We are able to buy things we<br /> need, like food and books for school.<br />
  • 14. My family<br />We are really proud to be part of a coffee community – we work hard and have made good friends. <br />Being part of Eurocafe means we can look <br />forward to the future.<br />
  • 15. My family<br />I want to be a policewoman when I grow up. One day I would like to go to a different city and see <br />what it’s like!<br />
