The Aid by Trade Foundation was founded in 2005 by Michael Otto, Hamburg industrialist and chairman of the supervisory board of the Otto Group, and has operated since then as an independent foundation within the Otto Group. Through its Cotton made in Africa (CmiA) initiative, it aims to help people to help themselves through trade and to safeguard the viability of future generations in Africa. Cotton made in Africa is the first initiative by the Foundation to put aid by trade into practice.
Social Accountability International is the official US-based representative for Cotton made in Africa, introducing this initiative to American companies and helping them to start using the initiative's socially responsible cotton.
