Pa Pa Paa LIVE! is an online video broadcasting service for schools, delivering webcasts from a rural school in a cocoa growing community in Ghana to classrooms across the UK.
The aim of Pa Pa Paa LIVE! is to increase young people's understanding of Fairtrade and the actions they can take as consumers and global citizens to make the world a better place.
Pa Pa Paa LIVE! is brought to you by Comic Relief and Trading Visions. The Pa Pa Paa resources were first launched in 2000 and updated for the web in 2005.
