Who is Fairis ?
Fairis is the main character in an exciting story about a frog who goes on an adventure through Nepal learning about fair trade along the way. His name - pronounced Fair - is (as in to be fair!) is a clue to the lessons that he learns.
He meets a friendly monkey called Chalak (meaning clever) who guides him on his journey.
He wants young people to read his book and learn all about Nepal and fair trade with him !
The name was inspired by a toy frog taken to America by Bruce Crowther when he went to visit Media, the first Fairtrade Town in the USA. The story was also inspired by a book written by Kanak Mani Dixit about a Nepali Frog called Bhaktaprasad Bhagyo - who is the Uncle of Fairis who sets him on on his exciting adventure.

The orginal 'Fairis A Frog' travels around Fairtrade Towns and has a facebook page to share his experiences.
He was recently seen at the 9th International Fair Trade Towns Conference in Bristol where he met Fairis a Nepali Frog (see photos above). In Bristol they both learnt a lot about Fairtrade (one word) and fair trade (two words).
They both loved the logo developed by Fair and Funky and look forward to hearing more about their work!
