Why Made in Africa?

Skilled Employment
Small-hole farming is closely related to dire poverty. Jobs in manufacturing are not. Real change can only happen when people move away from farming.
Better Access to Healthcare
The families of workers in manufacturing jobs are able to easily afford regular checkups. Necessary treatments don't have to be postponed because of a lack of money.
Education costs money. Whereas farmers constantly struggle to finance their children's education, a proper employment can finance second and third degree education for worker's kids.
Women Empowerment
Half of the board of our partner cooperative Kuapa Kokoo is "manned" with women. We support their effort in strengthening women's income generating power by offering training, i.e. for soap production.
Skills & Capacity
Value adding in Africa is hard due to poor infrastructure. If more companies like fairafric develop, demand will increase quality of services and infrastructure and attract even more business. A virtuous circle.
We do our best to engage in training of more sustainable farming techniques and constantly seek to improve our own foot print.
