Uncommon Hero

Paul Rice, TransFair USA President and CEO, was recognized with the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship. The financial support that came with the award and subsequent grants gave us critical funding to scale up operations and increase impact. Since receiving the Skoll award, we have more than doubled the additional income earned by farmers and farm workers from the U.S. Fair Trade market and introduced six new product categories.

 Thanks to Jeff Skoll, Founder and Chairman, and Sally Osberg, President and CEO of the Skoll Foundation, and their staff, the Skoll Foundation family is encouraged to connect and collaborate. The Skoll World Forum held annually at the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford provides plenty of opportunities for idea exchange and networking. This April, in the historic Sheldonian Theatre, a short film in the Forums Uncommon Heroes series was premiered highlighting the work of Fair Trade, TransFair USA and Skoll winner Paul Rice. Were pleased to share it with you!
