Wear a Smile with… Cosmes Masareka

01.06.2017

With every Cotton made in Africa product, you can make smallholder farmers in Africa happier, because they benefit from every piece of textile who is awarded with the Cotton made in Africa label. Through Cotton made in Africa, they receive trainings that help them to manage their small farm better and to cultivate cotton sustainably and successfully. Cosmes Masareka is one of 695,000 small farmers working together with Cotton made in Africa: “There was no training on how to grow my cotton before. Now I am learning a lot in the group and I exchange more with other farmers. That helps me a lot. I could harvest more cotton and buy a piece of land. From my income I pay the school fees for my children.” You want to support and create impact yourself, connect with us on www.wearasmile.org #WearaSmile with @CottonmadeinAfrica!
