HAMBURG – The Aid by Trade Foundation (AbTF), which oversees the Cotton made in Africa (CmiA) initiative, has launched a new project on the continent to help small-scale cotton farmers protect their soil and long-term prosperity.  

Backed by German authorities to the tune of €2.8 million (US$2.95m), the foundation’s work sets out to benefit upwards of 100,000 people by affording them support on sustainable agriculture and soil management.  

“Our goal is to enable both current and future generations of farmers to earn a living from the cotton produced in their soil. To achieve this goal, it is crucial to sustainably manage soil as a natural resource, which is why that is our primary focus in this project,” commented Tina Stridde, AbTF’s managing director.
