Cotton made in Africa grows further

01.08.2013

More and more people cooperate with Cotton made in Africa. In the last harvest season, around 475,000 smallholder farmers from Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe participated in the programme. Including their direct dependents e.g. family members roughly more than 3 million people profit from the work done by the Cotton made in Africa initiative.

Qualification programmes teach smallholder farmers about efficient and environmentally friendly cultivation methods. Thereby farmers achieve increased yields thus improving their income and living conditions. Social programmes that focus on building up school infrastructure and promote women’s cooperatives in rural cotton-growing regions furthermore supports farmers and their families.
