The Turing Trust

The Turing Trust is a sustainable development charity, making people more employable by bringing transformative technologies to those most in need.

Our main activity involves recycling IT in the UK for use in rural African schools. Our schools lack the learning resources we take for granted, limiting their potential. Together we can fight e-waste in the UK and improve education for young learners.

Scottish Fair Trade Forum

“The Scottish Fair Trade Forum stands up for the dignity and rights of the people who produce our goods, and aims for Scotland to become a global leader in using trade to challenge poverty.

We encourage businesses to incorporate Fair Trade principles and corporate accountability into their practices, and work with the public sector to integrate these principles into decision-making at all levels of government.

We engage the public in Scotland by raising awareness and understanding of the benefits of Fair Trade, and arrange for Fair Trade producers to visit Scotland to discuss their work.

Edinburgh World Justice Festival

Set up after the Make Poverty History march in Edinburgh during the 2005 G20 meeting, the festival aims to
1. raise the profile of international justice and development issues;
2. provide an annual ‘shop window’ to the public; and
3. be a platform for co-operation and debate for the world justice movement in Edinburgh.
It puts together the programme of the festival which in 2014 is from 04 – 11 October, organising some key events, and co-ordinating all the other events which are put on by supporting organisations

Jubilee Scotland

Jubilee Scotland is a coalition of faith groups, charities, unions and other civil society groups who campaign together, and as part of the international debt movement, for the total and unconditional cancellation of all unjust and unpayable poor country debt.

We believe that poverty is an artificial and not a natural state. It is perpetuated by institutions such as debt, and dismantling such institutions is necessary to create a more equal world. We have been part of many campaign victories in the past and look forward to being involved in many more.
