The author developed a co-learning  program at- and with support of -the Fashion Institute Modatex – a vocational training center of the textile industry located in Lisbon, Benfica. Modatex is interested in this program, because of its perspective of a social approach in knowledge sharing with African people, who have such a strong cultural background. To promote better financial conditions to the tailors, the school tried all efforts to get a scholarship to help them to come to school. In February 2012, the tailors received a small subsidy that covers the costs of public transport (4.25 euros per day).
