#stayathomeThe COVID-19 pandemic also affects us, the Aid by Trade Foundation (AbTF). Until further notice, we do not travel to our project areas in Africa or to the textile production markets around the world to protect the health of our employees, partners and customers. We have shifted our daily work to home office and continue to work and connect virtually with all our colleagues and stakeholders. This way we ensure that our work for smallholder farmers in Africa and the protection of the environment continues. With the measures we have introduced, we are following the advice of the German Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO). We are observing current developments very closely and are in regular contact with our partners along the textile value chain in order to act together now and in the future in a sustainable, effective and responsible manner.

All the more reason for us to appeal to your solidarity, which is more in demand today than ever. Numerous livelihoods that are closely linked to the Cotton Made in Africa initiative are at stake worldwide. When shopping, show solidarity with the people behind our textiles and with the environment, whose preservation we must urgently ensure.

You can still contact us by phone or e-mail directly to the well-known colleagues or simply send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Warmest regards,
