If we have reached this goal, it is thanks to the great community of installers, customers, suppliers, followers, agents and employees who contributed to writing our story.
We thought it would be nice to have them all on one page, and that it would be even nicer to find a way to express our gratitude for the results achieved.
That is why we have decided to support a charity initiative.
Take a selfie and give: here’s how the initiative works
For every photo published by anyone on the website dedicated to the 90-year anniversary (90.fantinicosmi.it), the company will donate 1 Euro to the Interlife NPO. All you need to do is uploading your photo on the website, via desktop or mobile. The website keeps track of the published photos. At the end of the project, the number of photos will be counted, and the sum that Fantini Cosmi will donate to the Interlife NPO will be calculated on a 1-to-1 basis (1 photo = 10 Euro). Participants will be notified of the donation by email, at the end of the project. We will keep you posted on the progress on our social channels.
What will the funds be used for?
Thanks to your selfies and to the work of Interlife we will fund 35 agriculture Toolkits for farming cassava, a staple of the local communities.
What does it mean? We will support 35 families in starting up environmentally sustainable farming, in the Ivory Coast, specifically in the Bouna area, Bounkani department. Each of these families will receive seeds, tools, training courses and a marketing primer to start up and promote cassava farming, based on principles of environmental sustainability and consistent with the area’s traditional crops. Once they have set up, the same micro-entrepreneurs will coach and help in their turn 35 other families in need. Thanks to the replicability of the Interlife Toolkit, Fantini-Cosmi will support 70 families in starting up a fair and environmentally sustainable micro-business, to restore their dignity with work and self-sustenance.
The collection started on April 1st, 2021 and will end on December 31st, 2021, to allow as many people as possible to take part.
Interlife is an NPO that works in the field of international cooperation with many projects. Among them, we were particularly impressed with the toolkit idea, a truly shared and sustainable development model that focuses on people. Interlife toolkits are aid programmes containing equipment, raw materials, professional training and everything needed to set up in business, to support oneself and one’s family, and to trigger a chain effect based on solidarity within one’s community.
This approach is not limited to sending money, but actually puts into the hands of those who live in conditions of poverty tangible tools to build a life project for themselves and their family, and start a virtuous circle in their community.
All Interlife projects are set up according to an environmentally-sustainable approach and designed with a great focus on nature, guaranteeing a long-term impact and balanced, responsible and lasting growth.
All Toolkits are organic and promote the growth and consumption of local produce, protecting and making the best use of the natural resources in the area.
Among the various available options, we chose the farming kit because we liked the sustainable approach that is also part of our vision. Specifically, we chose the cassava toolkit, because now is the right season to prepare the fields and to start providing tangible help.
