We are PJEA students who believe that pants can make poverty history - but we need your help. Let's shout Pants To Poverty!

We are a team of students from Stow College who have been set a challenge by Pants To Poverty to raise as much money as we can by selling our fairtrade items. (We are the only Scottish team!)

Our social enterprise supports government run farmer schools, farmers and factory workers in India who produce both the fairtrade cotton, and our pants, pjs, vests etc.

We can’t do this without you! Please take a look at our rewards, make a promise and in return we will send you one of our 95% fairtrade & organic cotton, 5% elastin products.

The target for the challenge is to raise/sell £5000 worth of stock. We are also approaching businesses in the hope of bulk orders to help us reach our target and our crowdfund will play a huge part in it too. Every penny really does count!

So what do we students get out of it? Well, not only do we get to spread the fairtrade message and help communities across the globe but we get to put our last 8 months of learning into practise; we have produced a video, written a business plan and developed a sales and marketing campaign, all in our own time. By taking part in the Pantreprenuer challenge, we have the chance to win at trip to India to meet the communities that we are helping. Amazing, we know!

If you want to help us but want to go that extra fairtrade mile we can donate your item, whether its pants or pjs, to another worthy charity which take pants and other items over to Africa every year. You can help two causes at once!

Everyone who makes a promise will be kept up to date with our progress.

Big thank you for your help and support!

Team "KEEP IT IN..." Natalie Morrison, Tony Mitchell, Lana Britschenko and Sergin Sanneh.
