The women from the embroidery section in Thanapara Swallows Development Society Handicraft Program were deciding about the level of meeting the Fair Trade principles. The organization management includes the producers into the decision process and helps them understand the ideals of Fair Trade production. Thanks to education and capacity building the producers are fully competent to vote about meeting eight of the Fair Trade principles.

The voting process occurs at least once a month. The participants express their opinion by placing buttons to cloth sacks. While the sacks mean Yes and No the workers divide ten buttons regarding their own opinion to each of standards. The whole process is completely anonymous.

The last results were quite positive. The workers proclaimed, that there is absolute gender equity and that the organization hires no children for labour. Promoting Fair Trade, Capacity building and Fair Wages were also principles that Thanapara Swallows meets really successfully.
