T4D CORPORATE

This is an initiative where corporate companies find innovative ways to "Trade for Development".

By purchasing high quality T4D branded products, a Company's normal procurement function is transformed as the purchase of specific products leads to specific development and increased sustainability at the source where people produce these goods.

How is your company contributing to the development of local Skills and Jobs in you community? 

T4D Corporate Awards coming soon.
