The T-shirts that fund school projects in Africa

“I’m passionate about helping disadvantaged young people. It’s a cause to which we’ve contributed €300,000 since 2004, through the Unicef T-shirts I design. The proceeds from this one will fund school building, teacher training and other projects in Togo, where only 23 per cent of children finish primary school.”
