I read an amazing article earlier this week from the Fashion Business Africa website about an organization called Liberty & Justice Development. It is an organization founded by Chid Liberty and Adam Butlein; to help the African apparel industry meet the challenge of global competition by achieving higher output and lower costs, to build the industrial skills of the African work force, and to establish models for social and environmental justice in apparel manufacturing that are transferable to other industries (an excerpt from their website).

The FBA article outlines how they started a t-shirt factory in Liberia and have expanded to Ghana. I encourage you to take time to read the article and visit the Liberty & Justice website to learn more about the organization.
Ethical fashion and fair trade is extremely important not only to our community but to the entire world.
